William Park and Son
This is a good scareneck brassie from a famous Musselburgh maker. The small head is characteristic of the period 1903-1906 whether scareneck or socket-head and made from the then relatively new "wonder wood", persimmon. It has a clear stamp of "Wm Park" highlighted in black against the light head.
The sole is protected by a ram's horn slip and a brass soleplate secured bu six screws.
A suede grip tops the straight hickory shaft with some decorative whipping probably added in the 1920s.
