Produced at some point in the 1890s by Willie Park Jr., the Ideal bramble ball is modeled after the Agrippa pattern.  This unused solid gutta percha ball is in perfect condition.

In his book, The Story of the Golf Ball,” Kevin McGimpsey writes that “reproductions are played with on the reconstructed Abington Course in Scotland.”  This ball, however, is not one of the modern reproductions.
