An excellent solid oak Side Table & Seat from the ex Mouseman craftsman Fred Suffield. Fred is the original 'Oakleafman', this signature was later revived again in 1986 by David Langstaff. In later life Fred also worked with Sid Pollard.  In wonderful condition, made for family friends and bought by us privately from them with Fred's beautifully carved oakleaf in high relief to the seat end. Original thick aniline cow hide seat with wonderful colour and patina, with just a few expected marks which are always seen on these earlier untreated hides. The medium fumed oak framework is solid and has been sympathetically re-waxed, the hide cleaned and conditioned.

Circa 1960s

An excellent and rare  example of an adzed oak corner shelf made by ex mouseman craftsman Fred 'Oakleafman' Suffield. The top is adzed and constructed from a substantial single block of 1 3/4" thick solid oak, the leading edge canted and featuring very fine and distinctive arts and crafts carved detailing. The top is supported by a 1 1/4" thick dovetail jointed oak bracket with screw holes drilled at regular intervals and Fred's signature oakleaf carved into the oak prominently. Cut down shelf support buttons are used to seal off the screw holes on the bracket.

Cleaned  of accumulated paint splashing and wax polished it has a wonderful deep  aged honey colour and patina.

Fred Suffield was a Robert Thompson's craftsman in the 40s/50s, he later worked for Sid Pollard and on his own. His solo work is quite rare to the market and bears an Oakleaf signature. He died at a relatively young age in the 1970s. His Oakleaf signature was later revived and adopted by David Langstaff when he set up  his own business in 1986, although there are subtle differences in their design.
