Sid Pollard, Yorkshire Oak 3’ Bureau

Stock ref: DS2593

Circa 1960s

An excellent solid oak 3' wide Bureau  from the ex Mouseman craftsman Sid Pollard of Bagby, Near Thirsk. Of typical rectangular form with a fall front supported on two pull out lopers, opening to reveal a writing desk and storage compartments with a wonderfully clean interior Adzeing to all visible exterior surfaces  over in line with early Mouseman craftsmanship. A bank of four drawers below, all with traditional wrought iron fittings.

Beautiful rich warm colour and patina, sympathetically cleaned and re-waxed in our workshop.

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 in 1994.
