In my last post I mentioned a set of six old WWII soldier carvings that I saw on Ebay in early 2010. When communicating with the owner, I learned that they believed they were characters carved by Duff Tweed after they found other carvings by Duff online. I had a difficult time deciding whether or not to purchase them and in the end decided I did not believe them to be Duff Tweed carvings. It was the faces that ultimately made me think these were not Duff's work. However, I have since heard Mr. Tweed did carve soldiers and thought it better to include these pictures in the blog. None of the pieces are signed, but do resemble the Slaughterhouse Four carvings in color and finish.
Below is a picture of "Slim" of the Slaughterhouse Four and a soldier for comparison purposes.
Hoping to have more to share this month. Working on a couple of Duffy deals!
Will share if they come to fruition.
All the best!
