Robert ‘Mouseman’ Thompson Oak Early Pair of 11” Candlesticks

Stock ref: DS1243

Circa 1930s

Superb and rare pair of early 11" tall octagonal Mouseman candlesticks with a typically early mouse carved to a facet on one of the candlesticks. The octagonal bases has been carved separately and wedge jointed from underneath to the stick columns. Wonderful rich depth of colour and patina with no losses or repairs, just very slight natural age related shrinkage  to the wedge joint on the underside.

Regularly used as intended they were originally given as a gift by Robert Thompson to a family relative, together with a fruitbowl (stock ref: DS1242), and hence by family decent prior to my purchase.

Size: 10(dia) x 28(h)cm,  4" x 11",  each.
