Robert ‘Mouseman’ Thompson, Oak Early 1 1/2” Napkin Ring

Stock ref: DS1193

Circa  1950s /early 60s

Smaller at 1 1/2" and much rarer to the market than the larger modern 2"  version. Superb condition with a very rich deep nutty brown colour  and patina. No losses or damage. Detailed and well carved high backed mouse on such a small item with the tail  to the left, much crisper and detailed  than is found on modern examples.

This is one of two that i have, see also stock ref: DS1190. They are not a matched pair, differ slightly in colour and have been made by different craftsmen so i am offering them separately. The final two images in the gallery below show the two side by side and with a more modern  2" napkin ring.

Size: 4.5(dia) x 4 (l)cm
