I had no idea I would be writing so soon after just posting "Damn I'm Good", Duff Tweed's Tennis Player carving, to share the latest addition to the Duff Tweed carvings collection. September 2010 has been our busiest month ever! We have no idea how it will end, but it has certainly started with a bang and shows no signs of slowing down.
Two days ago was my first contact with Dan in Los Alamitos, California. Dan acquired this Duff Tweed set of three golfers about one year ago. While working with a friend to clear out an apartment he was asked to get rid of a bunch of items and believe it or not, one of those items was this set of three Duffalicious carvings. Dan immediately took a liking to it and recognized the skill that went into creating these wonderful golfers. We talked today and he was kind enough to allow me to purchase and include it in the collecton. Thanks Dan . . . really appreciate having this one in the collection and here's why.
Next, while Duff did sign many of his pieces, he did not date them all. This is the first piece in our collection to show "63" representing the year 1963. It's actually pretty faint in the picture above (between the two golfers on the right), but I captured and enlarged it below.
Hope you enjoyed your visit today and that we'll be seeing you again soon.
If you get a chace, come back tomorrow or Saturday and I'll have a brand new, never seen before (at least not here) Duff Tweed western style carving. Don't want to ruin the surprise, so you'll just have to come back.
All the best!
