For your consideration, a vintage mid century carved wood figurine of a cigar-smoking golfer poised to make a difficult putt. This hand carved 2-piece sculpture was created by Romer in Italy out of several types of hardwood (the club is metal). The golfer has a wonderfully animated presence and the carving is expertly crafted, with wonderful color and depth to the woods fine finish. The figure is in excellent vintage condition with just some minor damage to the finish under the chin (see photo). The work stands 12” tall and is 4” x 5” wide, and is identified ith the standard Romer “Hand Made in Italy” maker’s stamp to the base. Romer pieces were very popular during the 1950s - 1960s and usually depicted a professional working. This is the one you have been looking for!
