Desk 2 Pen Holder- 3 Ball Guttie
Owing to the high demand for gutta percha balls by the 1870’s, mould formed balls had superseded the hand rolled versions with new surface patterns being available integral to the moulds. By 1885 golfers were able to use these moulds to restore their much used or damaged balls
– “a quick hot bath and a squeeze” being all that was required. When finished the balls were usually painted with lead based paint according to the season: red for winter, white for summer.
The much-favoured mould made design was the bramble pattern, which was carried forward to the next generation of rubber core balls.
This collection made in Scotland is designed to closely resemble the original Gutta Percha balls, they can be hit to give a flavour of a bygone day.
The base is made of solid Scottish Oak.This is the ideal gift for the golf fan. Entirely hand made in St Andrews Scotland.
