    Just as retailers were provided with elaborately crafted bat racks, so too were such accommodations furnished for other sporting goods.  At some point in its hundred-year history of making golf clubs, Spalding commissioned this conspicuous display to draw the customer's eye.  This one, made for Spalding by Lindsay Mfg., was made to showcase four clubs.  Its assembly is entirely wood, and the fasteners are unusual screws with a square recess.  The vintage is difficult to determine, but seems to be from the '30's or early '40's.  The structure is supported by a hinged wooden easel, and the unit stands about 4 1/2 feet.  All of the assembly's components are firmly affixed, and there's no material damage of note.  Its only liability is areas of worn paint -- expected in the normal course of its intended duty.  Overall EX+.  Please note: Due to the size and/or weight of this lot, additional shipping costs may apply.
