|This is one of two sets of the Slaughterhouse Four created in 1959 by Duff Tweed. Ron Urschel owns this set along with a hand written letter from Duff explaining the group is really from Alberta, Canada.|

Eventually Ron’s folks parted ways and his mother Betty ended up with the Slaughterhouse Four. Betty in turn gifted the set to Ron who will keep it FOREVER! I would too. Ron has had his Slaughterhouse Four set appraised and shared with us that the value is $20,000 or $5,000 per carving. We discussed this in short, but we both believe that value will be accurate as other communities and collectors become aware of Duff’s work and his strong affiliation with Disney.
Before we say goodbye, we’re sending out a HUGE shout out and sincere thanks to Ron and wife Sue Urschel for sharing Ron's time, pictures and precious childhood memories of the time he spent with Duff Tweed. As an aside, Ron smokes some of the best jerky and salmon around. If you’re a smoked jerky or salmon fan, we’d be happy to put you in touch with him. Ron included a picture of wife Sue Urschel, which we would also like to share with you in this post.
