FORGAN, the face has a Rams Horn insert held firmly in postion with 3 woodern dowels and it has a smooth face. Research tells us that Robert. Forgan & Sons St. Andrews. Forgan became club maker to HRH the Prince of Wales in 1863 and used the prince’s plume of three feathers as his mark. He was primarily a wooden clubmaker and is thought to have assembled and sold iron club as early as the 1860’s. Forgan’s used “”King’s Crown”” mark when the prince became King Edward. A son, Thomas (1853-1906), took over the firm after his father’s death in 1900.
