Circa 1970s / early 80s
An unusually rare opportunity for collectors of the Yorkshire Critters work to acquire what is believed to be a one off 10″ oak wall plaque carved with a cart horse, made by former mouseman craftsman Brian Bowes for personal family relations.
The plaque is carved from a solid block of oak and the high relief carving is wonderfully detailed and observed, the horses pose being identical to that used by Stan Dodds on his mouseman horse carvings. Adzed and tooled in typical mouseman style. Medium fumed this piece is devoloping a rich warm honey colour. Privately acquired together with a darker fumed carved bird of prey wall plaque from the same ownership.
We believe Brian joined Robert Thompson’s as an apprentice straight from school in the late 60s, working with them until the mid 1980s, when he left to take over a family owned joinery business.
