CHAGNON & Cie, Paris, 1929
The French compagny Chagnon edited, in 1929, a serie of 6 prints featuring golf players in XVIII° and XIX° century dressing engraved after some classical work (see at the bottom of this page). It is not uncommon to find any of those pictures but the full plate is rather scarce. Dimensions approx. 50 x 30 cm or 19"3/4 x 12"1/2.
Clic on any picture to enlarge it.
