A hickory wood shafted extremely large wooden headed mallet
putter. This putter design came to be
called the ‘Grand Piano.’ It was
originally designed by Jean Gassiat. I
believe these are also simply called ‘Gassiat’ putters. There were quite a few makers who made this
model putter. This particular one is
clearly stamped, “Taplow” on the crown and “Made In London, England” on the
sole. The only reference to this I could find was
in the Pete Georgiady book ‘Wood Shafted Golf Club Value Guide’ and it states
that ‘Taplow’ was a proprietary name used by the John Wanamaker Co. out of Philadelphia. So they may have been the retailer for this putter.
As to who the actual maker is I’m not
sure. If there is a British maker associated
with the name ‘Taplow’ then I would imagine they were the maker; if not then all
I can say for sure is that it was made in Great
Britain and likely retailed in the U.S.A.
by Wanamaker. This head is quite huge at
2 5/8 inches across the crown from front edge to the back edge. Face remains in quite good condition. There are a couple small nicks to the brass
sole plate on the leading edge (see pictures).
The largest nick along the leading edge extends slightly into the wood
face and it appears there is a tiny amount of filler there (see pictures). There is also a larger crack out at the toe
area. This crack actually extends
slightly onto the crown area as a tight hairline (see multiple pictures). Shaft is almost certainly the original. Wooden shaft is without chips or cracks and
remains straight. Club has a stunning
period maroon leather wrap grip that is intact with whippings. Grip is almost certainly the original and has
the paddle grip design that usually came on these Grand Piano putters. 34 ¼ inches in total club length. Please see my other wood shafted and vintage
collectible golf clubs. Some are quite
rare. Also listing collectible Ping
putters on a regular basis. All without
