Produced in the 1890s, this McEwan brassie is a true bulger. The face is designed with a convex curve from heel to toe. The long nose woods of the 19th century and earlier, with their long heads and often concave faces, gave way by 1890 to the compact wood head that had a face that was convex.  Many of the compact "Bulger" drivers and brassies of that period, however, simply had flat faces.

The 42" shaft appears original and the grip appears to be an old replacement. The grip has come loose at some point and is now reattached to the shaft, but it does not lay as nice as it once did. 

This club is shown to the right in the accompanying group picture.
