Offered here is a scarce original wood golfer figure by celebrated French sculpture artist and architect Andre-Vincent Becquerel. To our knowledge, only two of these circa 1920s yellow clothed wood golfer figures still exist. This example is exceptional, and depicts an impressively dressed golfer. The only other known example currently resides in a private collection, and was featured in the collecting book A Passion for Golf

This is a large piece, standing 18 1/2" tall. Signed by the French artiest A. Becquerel.  

This piece is being offered today from the famed Ronnie Watts Collection
