Presumably a replica of a 1920's movable coin bank toy, with crossed clubs shield sign lettered "Birdie Putt" on the front of the base. Spring-action metal button activates the swivel action in the golfer hitting a coin and sinking it the hole, while the caddie moves the flagstick out of the way. Base measures 1½" tall, 6¾" from left to right and 2½" from front to back. Two golfing figures measure approximately from 3 to 3½" tall.

Found in Decorative Golf Collectibles p. 132.
