Offered here is an exceptional, early circa 1830 feather golf ball. This feather ball is quite a bit larger than most featheries that we encounter, and likely dates to at least the 1830s. This ball was displayed in the famed Ronnie Watts collection as being from Musselburgh ballmaker Tom Alexander. That may very well be the case, but we have been unable to locate an Alexander stamp on the ball's surface. 

This piece is being offered today from the famed Ronnie Watts Collection
