Product Description

" The Great Triumvirate" European Marquetry. Harry Vardon, James Braid and Ted Ray.

Museum Framed with beuatiful detail of the mother-of-pearl inlay. One of Kind, signed by Tony Jacklin. Anthony Jacklin CBE is an English golfer, who was the most successful British player of his generation, winning two major championships. He was also the most successful European Ryder Cup captain ever.  Marquetry is the art of inlaying different woods and other natural materials to create a picture. It has been around for thousands of years. Making these beautiful picture is a long tedious process. Each piece has to be cut with the utmost attention to detail. Then they have to be assembled, recut and so on. For the finest work of art  it may take as much as 10,000 man-hours. Each image contains up to 20 types of wood in hundreds, if not thousands, of various shapes, sizes, and colors, which will form a composite image resembling a rich, three-dimensional oil painting.                           

Ted Ray was best known for participating in a playoff for the U.S. Open in 1913 with Vardon and Francis Ouimet, the winner. It was the subject of a 2005 Disney movie entitled, The Greates Game Ever Played, based on author Mark Frost's 2002 book of the same name. Ray had joined Vardon on an extensive tour of North America, promoted and financed by English media baron Lord Northcliffe. The two stars travelled the continent for two months, partnering in exhibition matches against the top players in each area they visited. The tour was very successful, attracting large crowds who came out to watch the top British players challenge emerging local golf talent at a time when golf was entering a boom period of popularity, which was further stimulated by the tour. Vardon and Ray ended their tour at the 1913 U.S. Open. James Braid was a Scottish professional golfer and a member of the Great Triumvirate of the sport alongside Harry Vardon and John Henry Taylor. He won The Open Championship five times. Harry Vardon became golf's first superstar since the days of Youbg Tom Morris. In  1896, Vardon won the first of his record six  Open Championships (a record that still stands today). Vardon had great rivalries with James Braid and J.H. Taylor, who each won five Open Championships; together the three formed the 'Great Triumvirate', and dominated worldwide golf from the mid-1890s to the mid-1910s. These rivalries enormously increased the public's interest in golf.
