Sid Pollard, Yorkshire Oak Bureau

Stock ref: DS2515

Circa 1980

An excellent example of  a  solid oak Bureau from the renowned ex Mouseman  and 'Yorkshire Critters' craftsman Sid Pollard.  In keeping with the craftsmanship of early Mouseman  pieces the Burea is extensively adzed to all visible areas, including the individual inlaid panels. The Bureau features a fall-front  which opens to reveal a writing desk in superb condition and sits on twin pull-out lopers. Additional storage is accomodated in the two short and 3 long drawers. The whole piece is complimented  by the use of traditional wrought iron fittings.

Excellent internal and external condition, finished in a durable wax over polyurethane finish.

Superb value for such craftsmanship.

Sid Pollard lived in Bagby, near Thirsk, and was one of Robert Thompson's early apprentices, together with his brother. His solo work is almost always unmarked, preferring to let his craftsmanship speak for itself. After leaving Thompson's he combined his solo work with the family building firm, Pollard Builders. His solo work dates from the  late 40's through to his death in the early 1990s.
