Robert ‘Mouseman’ Thompson Earlier Adzed Oak Book Trough

Stock ref: DS2183

Circa 1950s

A superb example of an early Mouseman Book Trough, extensively adzed to all visible surfaces including the rear. The amount of adzing has been reduced over the years and since the late 70s only the quadrant sides have been adzed. Presents in excellent condition with a wonderful patina  and warm aged colour tones.  It also features an upwards facing carved  mouse which is rarer to find on these book troughs as they are harder to carve against the grain.
