‘Mouseman’ Robert Thompson, Oak Early Book Rack

Stock ref: DS2322

Circa 1940s/50s

A superb earlier made example of the  extremely popular solid English oak Book Trough / Rack  from the workshops of Robert 'Mouseman' Thompson. Rich  dark fumed colour with adzing to the sides, book rest and the rear of the piece, in line with earlier craftsmanship. In later years there is progressively less adzing on these items. Excellent mouse carving, carved running upwards which is harder to carve as it's against the grain of the wood.

Size: 45(w) x 20.5(d) x 20.5(h)
