Robert Mouseman Thompson Oak Monks Chair 1937

Stock ref: DS2770

1937

New in  and market fresh from a private family collection,  photographed as purchased and unloaded from our van.

An excellent early bespoke commissioned Robert 'Mouseman' Thompson Oak Monk's Chair, the curved back rail with a  carved monks head on either side. The central splat with a shield  carved with a crown, dated 1937 and G.E initials, the side splats with very early examples of the now extremely popular interwoven lattice. The thick  aniline leather hide seat, wrapping over the side frames, is a replacement from the 1970s. The chair is supported on four legs with a crossed stretcher with an excellent early mouse carved to one front leg.

Darker fumed from new it presents in excellent rich colour and patina with solid  joints and original leather in excellent usable condition. 

Wonderfully looked after all its life, originally purchased by the  former owners grandparents who lived close to Kilburn and knew Robert personally. It requires nothing more than a very gentle and sympathetic clean and re-wax to the frame and a re-condition of the leather. One of  two monks chairs and a number of other early and later pieces privately purchased directly from the original owning family.

Size: 61.5(w) x 58(d) x 79(h)cm
