Offered here is a high grade circa 1840s-50s John Jackson (1805-1878) long nose play club (driver). Says Jeff Ellis in The Clubmaker's Art, "John Jackson's clubs possess all the traits of a masters at his craft: style, grace, and quality workmanship." "Although Jackson was making clubs during the same period as Hugh Philp and Douglas McEwan, very few of his clubs remain compared to the number of known McEwan and Philp clubs." Ellis goes on to discuss that even Jackson clubs with flaws are worth owning considering the rarity of his clubs. Says Ellis, "[f]or a collector to settle only for a nearly unused Jackson is practically to guarantee never owning one at all."
