Well, I thought I'd have more to share over the past month, but people have been so busy this summer. Let's hope the economy follows suit. On a hunch, I tried searching Duff Tweed carvings on the internet and saw I was three days late for an auction held in Scottsdale, Arizona. They auctioned not one, but two Duff Tweed framed carvings. I was fortunate enough to capture the pictures of the actual carvings sold and was subsequently quoted the sale prices for each. I will share the pictures and prices paid below.
First we have the ever familiar and popular Slaughterhouse Four. This particular set of four are all on one single frame. Through my research I have been led to believe that there were only two Slaughterhouse Four sets of carvings affixed to one frame, but that there are many more Slaughterhouse Four carvings in existence. I now believe there are more than two sets of the four carvings hung on one single frame. I can verify the existence of at least 6 individual sets of the Slaughterhouse Four carvings, two of which I own. I'll share the second set I just purchased in the next blog post.
Here's a picture of the Slaughterhouse Four that just sold on September 4, 2010:
