One of the advantages of having a blog on a particular subject is that persons with similar interests have a way of finding and contacting you. We were recently contacted by a collector who shared he had 13 different Duff Tweed carvings and was looking to sell all but one of them.
The collector is Ross Carr and this is his Duff Tweed collection. We at Duff Tweed Carvings have purchased six carvings from Ross so far and are in discussion to purchase another two or three. Upon completing our first purchase, Ross shared two identical golfer carvings we had never seen. Once we have purchased the other carvings, we will edit this blog to include the newest editions from Mr. Carr's collection.
Now let's start sharing. Below is a set of three golfers never displayed in this blog. All the carvings from Ross's collection are in excellent shape with very clean backgrounds. Ross was obviously collecting years before we got started. Ross and I are both Aquarians and born 6 days apart from one another, so maybe we're destined to collect Duff's work.
|Attempted to enlarge picture, but it get's cut off and you can only see two golfers, sorry!|
We would normally comment on each piece, but as there are so many, we thought we'd simply share them and let you see the Carr Collection. Ross, like myself has a love affair with golf. Luckily, he collected Duff Tweed's golfer carvings so we get to benefit by adding new and unseen carvings to the Duff Tweed Carvings collection.
Below is another golfer individually framed and signed.
