Antique Long Nose Golf Club.
A superb unnamed long nosed scared-head golf club. The polished head has a flush lead weight to the rear (normally the lead is left proud) and note that the sole does not have the traditional horn slip along the leading edge. The hickory shaft and sheepskin grip are original. This is a very unusual example of a long nose golf club from the 1880's in excellent condition. The material of the club head is boxwood which is very uncommon for golf clubs so this is a rare example.
The early clubs are made with long slender shallow-faced heads with a hickory shaft glued to the head by means of a splice or scare joint. This joint is then further strengthened by whipping with a pitched thread. All beautifully hand made by craftsmen of the time.
