Robert ‘Mouseman’ Thompson, Oak Book / Media Trough

Stock ref: DS1138

Circa late 70s / early 80s

Genuine vintage handcrafted 'Mouseman' Book Trough from the workshops of Robert Thompson's Craftsmen Ltd in Kilburn, near Thirsk, North Yorkshire. Stunning condition, colour and graining from the rarer brown oak which, when combined with the fuming and natural maturation of the wood, results in the particularly deep colour and darker striped effect in the wood grain which is particularly noticeable on the back section. The quadrant end sections are adzed and feature particularly prominent medullary ray figuring in the carefully selected quarter sawn oak, one end carved with a lovely detailed high backed mouse. Free from any damage or staining.
