Stovepipe golf bags
Stovepipe golf bags are distinguished by their round shape - hence the name stovepipe - typically with an inside diameter of between 4 and 5 inches. These bags origins date to c1917 and as time passed the inside diameter became larger and other than round shapes appeared. Most construction was of canvas and leather with full leather stovepipe bags appearing rarely.
Stovepipe bags are prized as a display either on their own or with hickory shaft golf clubs and old mesh golf balls.
