Spode and Golf

The Open Golf Championship 2011 finished today after a stormy competition in Kent at Royal St George's.

The Spode factory produced many items associated with golf for a period of nearly 200 years. Early pieces often fetch record breaking prices as antiques and 20th century pieces are always popular with golf enthusiasts.

Low cup and saucer, c1980s
Golf Wares, c1890s
