Offered are 2 early Ladies Antique Hickory Wood Shaft Golf Club irons: ATCO and Meadowlark Putter.
The forged ATCO (Alex Taylor & Co. New York City), 37 inch club has its original brushed, mildly worn leather grip and hickory wood shaft. The shaft is solid, undamaged, with an early finish that has unobtrusive wear and a warm, aged patina. The tarnished club face shows honorable wear commensurate with an antique club and a square dot manufacture pattern.
The second club, a 33.5 inch putter marked "MEADOWLARK", sports its original shaft and smooth leather grip that are in good condition. The thick shaft is solid and has mild finish loss and imperfections commensurate with age and use.
The clubs face has the broken line design pattern and a small, ancient rust imperfection and age appropriate tarnished surface patina.
The clubs date to the 1910 - 1925 era based on the ATCO crimped hosel design, stamped square dot pattern and similar style clubs of the era. Both clubs have an (L) stamped on the back of each club indicating that they are ladies clubs.
