Maker's mark and full hallmarks beneath.

The Cannes Golf Club (now Golf de Cannes-Mandelieu Old Course) is the oldest course on the Riviera. It was founded by Grand Duke Michael Mikhailovich of Russia in 1891 who was a first cousin of Alexander III of Russia. In that same year he married Countess Sophie of Merenberg, a morganatic marriage that caused his exile from Russia and so shocked his mother that she suffered a fatal heart attack. After his exile, the Grand Duke Michael and his family lived mainly in England, France and Germany. His two daughters married into the British aristocracy.
