Francis Powell Hopkins (1830-1900), or "Major Shortspoon", created a virtual history of early golf with his fine pen and ink and watercolors. This is a fine hand painted porcelain menu placard depicting what is believed to be Old Tom Morris alongside a gentlemen golfer and a caddie. 6 1/2" x 4 3/4" porcelain. The tiniest chip in the rear upper left corner.
