Sid Pollard lived in Bagby, near Thirsk, and was one of Robert Thompson's early apprentices, together with his brother. His solo work is almost always unmarked, preferring to let his craftsmanship speak for itself. After leaving Thompson's he combined his solo work with the family building firm, Pollard Builders. His solo work dates from the  late 40's through to his death.

Circa 1970s

A wonderful demonstration of craftsmanship and attention to detail inside and out.  Sid Pollard's design of   blanket /storage chests are rarer and more unusual than those made by Robert Thompson's as the lid also features the  same distinctive individually selected oak panelling, pegging, chamfered edges and  adzing as the front, back and sides.  Not only is the entire framework adzed, each individual panel is too, which harks back to the earliest Mouseman construction techniques. To contain costs most modern made blanket boxes by R. Thompson's and others now only feature adzing to the lid section, which itself is more cheaply made from a plain single or double planked top.

Superb condition, wonderfully clean internally and externally, lighter more golden / medium  oak colour.

This piece has been made by ex mouseman craftsman Brian Haw whilst working with Sid Pollard, for his own personal family use and comes to market from his family estate, together with other personal pieces. The Haw family have a 90 year unbroken  connection to Robert Thompson's with Brian's father Len Haw starting work in 1920 as one of Robert's very eariest craftsmen. Brian and his brother John followed him into Robert Thompson's on leaving school in 1960. John Haw retired in 2010 after 50 years service, Brian left in 1970 and worked with Sid Pollard prior to his death.

Circa 1960s/70s

A rare example of a  Gated Oak Letter Rack from  the ex Mouseman craftsman Sid Pollard, of Bagby. With a curved back and detailed bar gate to the front, a design that is similar to and now more synonemous with the later 1980s onwards made  Bob Hunter 'Wrenman's ' wren carved letter racks.  In excellent original condition with a baize lined base,  just a very minor wood chip to the front left corner edge of  the base. 

Sid was one of Robert Thompson's early apprentices and craftsman and his work is increasingly highly regarded by collectors. As with almost all his work it is unmarked, he always preferred to let his craftsmanship speak for itself.
