A beautiful matched pair of well proportioned and rare to market solid oak Candlesticks from the talented ex Mouseman craftsman Martin 'Lizardman' Dutton of Huby.

Each carved with Martin's trademark and very distinctive Lizard signature, which is quite different to the later Derek Slater's lizard carving. 

Excellent darker fumed and waxed condition with a little expected scorch marking to the  candle sockets  from usage.

Circa late 40s - early 60s

 A rare and exquisitely carved oak dish of maple leaf form from ex mouseman craftsman Martin Dutton, only the second of it's type we have acquired over the years we have been in business. A wonderfully tactile piece to handle, the oak is beautifully contoured and tooled in traditional mouseman style to all visible surfaces,  with Martin's distinctive Lizard carved prominently within the dish. Gently cleaned and re-waxed in our workshop to revive the rich brown  colour tones of the fumed oak. Wonderful condition for its age,  but we know our regular clients appreciate our honest descriptive appraisals so would point out very slight evidence of old chipping to one leaf tip and a very fine old professional glued repair along the wood grain, to the leaf tip where the lizard is carved. All are shown in the image gallery below.
