Wilf ‘Squirrelman’ Hutchinson 7'6" Dining Table and 10 Chairs

Stock ref: DS2108

Circa 1980s

A superb 10 seater dining set from the ex Mouseman craftsman Wilf 'Squirrelman' Hutchinson who set up his own business in 1957. It continues today in the capable hands of his son, Trevor.

Features a 7'6" x 3'2" adzed oak refectory style dining table, supported on trestle legs with sledge feet, joined by a pegged stretcher. Wilf's signature squirrel is carved prominently to one leg. The set includes 8 dining and 2 carver armchairs, all with their original deep green lether upholstery which presents in wonderful condition. Each chair back is handcarved with a Yorkshire / Tudor rose back, always a more labour intensive and costly option to purchase new than the usual lattice or solid panel back chairs. Each chair also features a carved squirrel signature.

Wonderful original condition and a warm medium fumed and waxed colour.

Excellent value, this set would cost  in excess of £ 8,500 to purchase new today.

Size: Table 228(l) x 96(w) x 75(h)
