Gavin ‘Lilyman’ Kirkbride Oak Rectangular Side Table

Stock ref: DS2680

Circa 2007-10

An excellent  solid oak four legged  Side Table  by the ex mouseman craftsman Gavin 'Lilyman' Kirkbride of Brompton, Northallerton. Rectangular form with adzed top, drawer and undershelf, panelled sides and rear, standing on four octagonally carved legs with  Gavin's trademark arum lily carved to  one. 

Superb condition and colour, following a gentle clean and re-wax.

Provenance: Susan & Dennis Exley Collection, avid collectors of the Yorkshire craftsmen's work from the 1970s to 2000s. Sue supported Gavin in his early solo days so these pieces represent some of his earliest commissions. This is one of three side tables of differing configurations / sizes we have acquired.

Having had a keen interest in woodwork from a young age Gavin went to work as an apprentice at Robert Thompson's after leaving school in 1992. His career at  Thompson's spanned 15 years and saw him qualify as a highly skilled craftsman.  He established his own business in Northallerton in 2007, the business name inspired by the birth of his first child, daughter Lily. As an ex mouseman craftsman  and inspired by the ethos and traditions acquired there, Gavin now makes bespoke hand crafted solid oak furniture  and joinery to clients specifications, each piece carved with an Arum Lily, a symbol of peace and serenity. Personally recommended by David, Gavin is also generous of his skills and time to our own business. Having known each other well for over 12 years, he's the ex mouseman craftsman David turns to when repair work or restoration advice is needed on our own stock pieces.
