An excellent  solid oak four legged  Side Table  by the ex mouseman craftsman Gavin 'Lilyman' Kirkbride of Brompton, Northallerton. Square form with adzed top, drawer and undershelf, panelled sides and rear, standing on four octagonally carved legs with  Gavin's trademark arum lily carved to  one. 

Excellent condition and colour, following a gentle clean and re-wax.

Provenance: Susan & Dennis Exley Collection, avid collectors of the Yorkshire craftsmen's work from the 1970s to 2000s. Sue supported Gavin in his early solo days so these pieces represent some of his earliest commissions. This is one of three side tables of differing configurations / sizes we have acquired.

Having had a keen interest in woodwork from a young age Gavin went to work as an apprentice at Robert Thompson's after leaving school in 1992. His career at  Thompson's spanned 15 years and saw him qualify as a highly skilled craftsman.  He established his own business in Northallerton in 2007, the business name inspired by the birth of his first child, daughter Lily. As an ex mouseman craftsman  and inspired by the ethos and traditions acquired there, Gavin now makes bespoke hand crafted solid oak furniture  and joinery to clients specifications, each piece carved with an Arum Lily, a symbol of peace and serenity. Personally recommended by David, Gavin is also generous of his skills and time to our own business. Having known each other well for over 12 years, he's the ex mouseman craftsman David turns to when repair work or restoration advice is needed on our own stock pieces.

A superb pristine condition former display piece made by ex mouseman craftsman Gavin Kirkbride at Lily Furniture. The beautifully grained 18" solid oak circular coffee or occasional table stands on  four curved and shaped legs leading to crossed feet. His signature arum lily is carved in high relief to one leg. Modern Osmo wood wax clear finish which highlights the natural colour and grain of the wood  and, being resistant to water and dirt, combines the advantages of oil and wax finishes. This piece is not adzed but if purchasers specifically wanted the top adzing  we could look into quoting for this to be undertaken separately.

Having had a keen interest in woodwork from a young age Gavin went to work as an apprentice at Robert Thompson's after leaving school in 1993. His career at  Thompson's spanned 15 years and saw him qualify as a Master Craftsman.  He established his own business in Northallerton in 2007, the business name inspired by the birth of his first child, daughter Lily. As an ex mouseman craftsman  and inspired by the ethos and traditions acquired there, Gavin now makes bespoke hand crafted solid oak furniture  and joinery to clients specifications, each piece carved with an Arum Lily, a symbol of peace and serenity.

Personally recommended by David, Gavin is also generous of his skills and time to our own business, having become the ex mouseman craftsman David turns to most frequently when repair work or restoration advice is needed on our own stock pieces.
