This 1890s club carrier is the coolest EVER! Plus it's in Fantastic condition and perfect working order.  With the carrier standing straight up, just push the handle towards the bottom of the stand and the legs pop out (which happens naturally when the stand is stood straight up).  Pull the handle towards the top of the stand (which will naturally occur when you pick up the stand) and the legs retract.  Both the canvas ball pouch and the club pouch are clean and solid with no holes.  The delicate leather straps on the ball pouch and the top of the stand are completely intact and unbroken. The wood board, marked "Patent" on the back side, and legs are also solid and strong.

Not only is it pictured and described as a version of Osmond's Patent on page 135 of The Encyclopedia of Golf Collectibles, this bag stand, with its owner's initials "G.R.P" on the club pouch, is pictured on the back cover of the standard edition of the book! Cover worthy!
