Robert ‘Mouseman’ Thompson, Bespoke Oak Steps

Stock ref: DS2613

Circa 1970s

An unusual bespoke commissioned  portable solid oak Robert 'Mouseman' Thompson  Steps, beautifully and solidly constructed with a signature mouse carved  to the edge of the central riser.

Ideal for use as intended, or, we think it would make a wonderful tiered stand for plants or sculptures. 

Cleaned and re-waxed it presents beautifully, just the expected minor indents in the upper flat sections from shoe heels etc over the years.

Provenance: bought directly from the Priory  Methodist Church in Doncaster who commissioned it as part of renovations  and alterations undertaken in  the mid 1970s. Originally opened in 1832 as a Weslayan Chapel with capacity for 400,  it finally closed its doors due to falling attendance in 2021. The building is currently for sale.

Size: 61(w) x 63.5(d) x 30.5(h)cm
