Ladies' putting cleek|
A ladies putter produced for J H Taylor's little brother, Joshua. Joshua served his clubmaking apprenticeship with his brother's firm, Cann and Taylor, and they later made clubs for him, as here, with the mark of a running greyhound.
The reverse, somewhat pitted, is also stamped with "Josh Taylor" (in signature), "Selected Putting Cleek", "L" (for Ladies'), "Warranted Hand Forged" and "Richmond Park", the south-west London club which Taylor served as professional in the 1920s.
The face has an enclosed square dot pattern. A good original shaft is also stamped "Josh Taylor Selected". The soft, deep-burgundy coloured leather grip is a replacement.
