Patented in the UK December of 1895 by Reginald Brougham, the Brougham driver is one of the earliest metalwoods to be produced in the history of the game.  The club includes a wood block inlaid into the face.  It is held into position by a screw that extends up into the wood from the sole, directly behind the face.  If the wood ever became damaged, the golfer need only remove the screw to remove the wood block and then fit a new wood block into place.

The head and shaft are original. The sheepskin grip is original, too, but it has damaged areas up high and down low.  With the head and original insert showing very little use, this is the nicest Brougham that the auctioneer has ever encountered.

This is the very club pictured and discussed in TCA2: V1, p335.  A signed copy of the page from the book is included with this club.
