Circa 1930s

A superb early Robert 'Mouseman' Thompson Burr oak panelled 3' Single Bed, one of a matched pair we have privately acquired (see DS1632)  which have been in the same family ownership from new. Extensively adzed to all visible surfaces including the oak side frames and complete with its original 'plyastic' metal sprung mattress base. The wooden side frames are easily detached for transport and are individually marked to ensure they are assembled correctly. The markings are different on each bed to ensure  they are not mixed up.  A wonderful mouse is carved in high relief to the left side of the footboard (looking at it from the foot of the bed).

Cleaned and wax polished in our workshop it presents in superb condition with a rich fumed and aged colour, ready to use. There is evidence of an old minor repair to the top corner of the headboard which are shown in the image gallery below.

Excellent provenance, privately acquired directly from the  surviving family of the former timber merchant and oak supplier in the pre and post war period to Robert Thompson, together with a professional house contents insurance valuation dated 1943, confirming the early age of this and other bedroom furniture pieces we have purchased  from this estate. Full details can be provided to the purchaser.

Offered for sale singly but, of course, we would love the two beds to remain together if possible and will be pleased to discuss pricing for the pair. 

Size: 197(l) x 99(w) x 99(h)cm. It will fit a UK standard 6'3" / 190cm mattress.

Circa late 1950s / early 60s

An excellent example of a vintage Robert 'Mouseman' Thompson Oak Four Branch Ceiling Chandelier. Features a central octagonal ceiling boss supporting a central octagonally carved port with four radiating arms, each fitted with upwards facing antique brass light fittings. The whole piece is adzed in line with early mouseman craftsmanship and a  fine  trademark mouse  is carved in high relief  to the centre stem. 

Privately acquired from the original owners family home in York, together with a 1950s octagonal table  and  bespoke monks chair,  it was in working order prior to removal from the ceiling. However, the wiring was in a dreadful and unsafe condition on examination so all the original wiring has been replaced with new 3 core earthed flex, fitted to new earthed antique brass bulb holders.

Wonderful rich colour and aged patina, just a slight splinter loss visible to the top of the ceiling boss around the screw holes (see image gallery below)

High quality english parchment shades can be purchased directly from Robert Thompson's if required.

The current design of these 4 branch chandeliers costs £ 1,780 to purchase new from Robert Thompson's Craftsmen Ltd making this vintage  adzed piece  superb value.

Size: 44(dia) x 51(h)cm overall, ceiling boss 17.5(dia)cm.
