Original 1898 bronze golfer sculpture from the famed Henry-Bonnard Bronze Co. foundry. To put that in perspective, also in the 1890s, Frederic Remington himself chose Henry Bonnard to exclusively case all of his bronzes. This exquisite 19th century bronze is signed by the artist, F.D. Wilson, in 1898. The foundry mark is from 1899. This nearly 120 year old piece is in near mint condition. 19" tall, 5 1/2" square base. Weighs 18 pounds. 

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