Robert Thompson ‘Mouseman’ Bespoke Oak Display Stand

Stock ref: DS1355

Circa 1970s

A unique opportunity to own a bespoke made  Robert 'Mouseman' Thompson Oak Display Stand suitable for  displaying specimen flowers, plants, vases or sculptures. Adzed all over and of significantly larger size overall than the standard plain models,  standing on an 11" (dia) octagonal base and  the tapering pedestal column  extending to 44"  height with a 9" diameter octagonal carved and adzed plinth to the top. The highlight on the piece is undoubtedly the bespoke and  delicately carved  grape vine with  well observed leaves and bunches of grapes   which extends around the base and then twists skillfully  two thirds of the way up the  adzed octagonal pedestal coloumn.  Clearly well looked after from new it presents in wonderful condition with no losses or damage to the intricate carving details, the only minor marking being to the top plinth were there is the expected evidence of light pot ring marking following use as intended. 

Size: 29.5(dia) x 112(h), top display plinth 23(dia)cm
