Robert Mouseman Thompson Set of 4 1930s Dining Chairs

Stock ref: DS2771

Circa 1930s

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

An excellent set of 4 early  low panel back dining chairs by  Robert 'Mouseman' Thompson of Kilburn. The frames adzed all over, the panelled chair backs with characteristic hand cut-out.  The thick  leather aniline hide seat  which wraps over the side frames is a 60s/70s replacement from Robert Thompsons.   A signature carved mouse sits in high relief to the front leg of each chair.

Darker fumed from new each chair  presents in excellent rich colour and patina with solid  joints, the leather in very usable condition, although with some usage staining as is typical of aged untreated aniline hide.

Originally purchased by the  former owners grandparents who lived close to Kilburn and knew Robert personally. One of a number of other early and later pieces privately purchased directly from the original owning family.

Size: 42(w) x 43.5(d) x 72(h)cm each
