Description

Needles Golf Club - The club was formed in 1888 at Totland Bay and some 400 feet above sea level, ‘sporting’ to say the least and one not to play in a mist. My example is probably an award type in copper gilt and enamels measures 20.5mm. The design is incised and the triple enamels do produce an attractive effect. The back marks are ‘Best Quality’ ‘G&S’ (Gaunt & Sons). Tony Gazzard states that the club dissolved c1950.
