Of typical rectangular form with rear upstand  and adzed all over in line with early Mouseman craftsmanship.

There's a later added and removable lining in the left drawer too.  The top features natural burrs in the oak towards the right hand side and in line with very early work it is visibly nail pinned to the framwork.  Complimented by traditional wrought iron fittings to the doors and drawers.

Beautiful rich warm colour and patina, slight natural wood spliting and warpage shown in the images below... to be naturally expected with an aged piece.

Circa 1970s

An excellent  set of 6 Lattice Back Dining Chairs  from the renowned  early ex mouseman and 'Yorkshire Critters'  craftsman Sid Pollard. Comprises 2 carver armchairs and 4 dining chairs, all with excellent original aniline leather upholstered seats. 

Excellent overall condition, lighter medium fumed finish. One carver chair has some dog chewing damage to one of the side leg stretchers, as shown in the image gallery and has been reflected in the pricing. We can recommend an ex mouseman craftsman who can replace this stretcher  for the purchaser if necessary. The original aniline hide is in remarkable condition given the 40-50 year age of the chairs and it is clear the chairs have been used infrequently.
