'SUPRIOR QUALITY'
Description

Wilmslow Golf Club - The Club was formed in 1889. The button had a fine and large (25mm) gilt uniform-type design, within a raised and milled circle. The raised design features clubs, balls and club title with a central charge, this being the crest of the ancient families Newton and Pownall: A lionís gamb erect proper, holding a key or from a chain reflexed or. This probably reflects the status of these families as former Lords of the Manor. The back mark is simply Superior Quality, but it is known that this item was made or finished by Messrs TB Wilkins, 52 Clement Street, Birmingham who closed c1922.

Information is from an article in "The British Golf Collectors Society" written by Dixon Pickup.
