Robert ‘Mouseman’ Thompson, 12” Oak Fruitbowl

Stock ref: DS2591

Circa  early 1960s

A wonderfully patinated example of the popular 12" Robert 'Mouseman' Thompson oak Fruitbowl, this piece made soon after the introduction of this design in about 1960.  Features a wonderfully large high backed mouse carving in the centre of the bowl which is tooled / adzed to the inner and outer walls of the bowl.

Excellent colour and patina, just a darker mark in the wood on one area of the rim where it looks as though a previous owner has attempted to rub the mark out resulting in a little thinning of the wood, but no cracking or other losses.

Size: 30(dia x 6(h)cm
