Antique Caddie Golf Bag, George Bussey Automaton Caddie.
A wonderful example of an early auto caddy by George Bussey, in exceptional condition. This is a rare find indeed as not many of these bags have survived, and they are difficult to obtain. Painted in gold lettering, but faded, to the top of the bag is 'GEO .G. BUSSEY & Co. Ltd, EXPERT, PATENT CADDIE'. The caddie has a boxwood carry handle and the main body of the caddie is made of mahogany. The boxwood handle is attached to the ash legs via metal rods and a brass mechanism. With this clever design the legs will open out automatically when the lower end is placed on the ground, and will then fold back in when lifted up. The leather bag for golf balls and the half pencil bag to the bottom of the stand are not the original bags.
George Bussey was a large London manufacturer of high quality equipment for sports and games.
