Circa 1950s/early 60s

An excellent panelled  and pinned Yorkshire Oak  Chest or Drawers or Dressing Table from former mouseman craftsman Sid Pollard. Features  a rear upstand, a dowel pinned top, panelled sides and 2 short over 2 long graduated drawers with wooden Arts  and Crafts style handles. Complete with its original adjustable bevelled glass mirror  which fits quickly to the rear if purchasers wish to use it as a dressing table. The top originally featured an unusual  bespoke commissioned kidney shaped top, we've had this original top squared off  to make it a more balanced and visually appealing piece, the work skilfully undertaken by our ex mouseman  craftsman and regular colleague Gavin at Lily Furniture.

Wonderful condition after a clean and re-wax with a rich natural depth of aged colour, some minor natural age related shrinkage to the drawer bases.

As is typical of Sid's work it is unmarked, he preferred to let his carftsmanship speak for itself. Believed to have been made as part of a full bedroom suite for the landlady of one of Sid's regular pubs in Stokesley, North Yorkshire. It is a companion piece to the Wardrobe, stock reference DS1644.

Circa 1960s

An unusual 3'9"(w) x 4'10"(h) Sid Pollard Glazed Display Cabinet / Dresser, demonstrating mouseman trained Sid's craftsmanship at its very best. Solid oak panelled throughout, with traditional wrought iron fitting and extensively adzed to all visible surfaces, the upper section features  two leaded and glazed doors with a fitted shelf within. Below are two drawers and two cupboards, each with fitted inner shelves, standing on octagonally carved feet.  Of modest proportions that make it a highly usable piece in all homes, large or small, it  is of unitary construction, so it is heavy, ideally needing two to move  it around.

It's been carefully used all its life and presents in excellent condition with no  exterior stains, damage or repairs, just the normal light glass ring marks on some lower inner shelves.  A fresh coat of clear wax has really accentuated the rich and ageing original medium fume. Privately acquired locally from the original owners family.

Circa 1980

A fine example of ex mouseman craftsman Sid Pollard's work, comprising a 6'10" long adzed refectory style dining table, two lattice backed carver armchairs and six lattice backed dining chairs. The table will seat 8 in comfort and up to 10. There's an optional extra 2 tudor rose backed dining chairs being offered at a special price if purchased as part of the dining set.

Bespoke made in circa 1980 for a family friend of Sid's who is now retiring and emigrating, from whom we've purchased a number of pieces in the past.

The three plank top is adzed and sits on expensive to make twin carved pedestal legs which are joined by a low stretcher. Finished from new in wax over polyurethane which has the benefit of providing greater heat and stain resistance than wax alone. The top presents in very good original condition, with just one small area of liquid staining visible in the top, which can be seen in the image gallery below. This is now well blended following a re-wax of the top, after the images were taken.

The lattice backed chairs present in very good original condition, all the chair frames are clean and sound. The aniline cow hide seating is original on all chairs and presents with a good naturally ageing colour and patina. As such, some have the usual expected minor marks but the  hide on both carver chairs is notably excellent.

The optional two rose backed chairs are also solid with original hide seats, although one hide has been ring marked from a pot plant sitting on the hide for an extended period as they have only been in use occasionally, to seat 10 at the table. However, they are available at an extremely attractive price if purchased with the table and lattice chairs.They are also offered for sale separately if required.

Panelled and adzed to all visible surfaces in line with early mouseman craftsmanship, standing on four octagonally carved legs and with traditional wrought iron fittings. The upper drawers are 10.3cm deep, the lower 11.4cm. As is typical of Sid's work it is unsigned, he preferred to let his craftsmanship speak for itself. Excellent condition with a golden oak colour.

Privately sourced from a former family friend of Sid's, from whom we've sourced a number of pieces in the past.

We have also secured a number of other pieces of Sid's work which will be on sale shortly, including a 7' Table with 8 or 10 chairs and a Display Cabinet.

Circa 1970s

Very rare, the first gated letter rack i've seen from Sid Pollard, made for family friends who were residents of Bagby (Sid's home village) and  in their ownership from new.  With a curved back and  wonderfully 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 gated letter racks. (See image gallery below for a comparison). In lovely original condition free from any damage and with its original green baise lined 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.
