Description

Northwood Golf Club - The club was founded in 1891 at Northwood, Middlesex, three miles east of Richmond. A very large (27mm) convex closed back copper gilt uniform button contains a central rococo shield bearing the county arms: Gules, three seaxes proper, hilts to the dexter. These are the ancient arms of Middlesex and Essex (the Middle and East Saxons). The reverse is without back marks but this example was in the closing stock of Messrs Pitt.
