An excellent large 14 1/2″ (l) hand carved oakleaf shaped dish by the ex Mouseman craftsman Fred ‘Oakleafman’ Suffield, shaped and tooled in the form of his carved signature.
Exellent condition and colour.
Fred Suffield was a Robert Thompson’s craftsman in the 1930s – 50s, he later worked with Sid Pollard and on his own. His solo work is quite rare to the market and bears an Oakleaf signature. He died in the 1970s. His Oakleaf signature was later revived and adopted by David Langstaff when he set up his own business in 1986. Their respective work is often confused but there are differences in the design of their oakleaf carvings.
