Made in the late 1890s by J&D Clark in Musselburgh, Scotland, the Musselburgh ball was among the top, most respected balls of their day. Vardon, himself, played the Musselburgh for a good period of time. This particular one is mint condition, with its original paint retaining its original, beautiful luster.

Ball is third from the left in the next to the top row in the accompanying group photo
