In the 1890s, George Nicoll of Leven famously produced a cleek with a leather insert in the face. Another variation that was apparently made in more limited quantities is the George Nicoll gutta percha insert cleek. Offered here is one of those rare clubs. The back of the head is marked "G. Nicoll, Leven" and the patent number 1543. 39 1/2". Very good condition. 

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