Victorian Golf Club Sign
A remarkable ornately carved Victorian sign from a golf club, dating from the late 19th century.
This impressive size sign is made in oak and decorated with beautiful carvings, including foliate swag, a bunch on grapes & pineapple at the base, both Victorian symbols of wealth.
The wonderful painted lettering & pointing hands are correct and genuine to the age of the sign, ‘The Left & Right Club’ is a fun reference to left & right handed players, along with with the ever sought after pointing hands, very much a fashion of the time. To the centre of the shield are 8 brass knobs, most likely for hanging large rings of keys, they do however remain useful and also work well for hanging hats & coats. The sign has been left in ‘as found’ condition retaining it’s magnificent age related wear and patina, it would however read well with a wax/polish, depending on the buyers taste. To the reverse is an old brass bracket which has been added for strength at some point, along with its original mounting loop. We unfortunately do not know much history on this special piece but it could have ties to Wales. This is a genuine one off piece of antique signage with fantastic subject matter and social history.
