Robert ‘Mouseman’ Thompson Very Early Oak Book Trough

Stock ref: DS1671

Circa 1930s

A superb example of a very early Mouseman Book Trough, extensively adzed to all surfaces including the undersides and rear with metal pinned sides, as only seen on the very earliest examples. Presents in excellent condition with a wonderful patina  and rich chestnut brown colour tones.  It also features an upwards facing carved  mouse which is rarer to find on these book troughs as they are harder to carve against the grain. 

Size: 46(w) x 20.7(d) x 20.7(h)cm
