Circa 1930s/40s

A most interesting unmarked piece, almost certainly made 'out of hours' by a Mouseman craftsman for their own family use. This was quite common and allowed  in Roberts lifetime.  This oak bedside / side cabinet has been constructed using top quality burr oak panels, adzed and pinned in the manner that the craftsmen were taught at Robert Thompson's, even the inner backs are adzed.  The only aspect of the piece that concerns us a little is that in our opinion the top may not be  original to the piece, the fastening used to secure it looks somewhat crude and out of keeping with the jointing used elsewhere  on the piece.

Nevertheless it's a lovely piece with a rich depth of aged  and fumed colour.

Size: 37.5(w) x 36(d) x 65.5(h)

Circa 1980s / 90s

A very rare and ususual large Yorkshire Citters Oak Ashtray, in excellent condition and beautifully carved with a signature neolithic / bronze age labyrinth in low relief, images of which an archaeologist client advises are  to be found in the North Yorkshire area.  Excellent condition, display use only, finished in a deeper fumed colour, leather lined base.

We have not seen  an example of this craftsman's signature previously but our current belief is that it is most likely one of the former Acorn Industries (Alan 'Acornman' Grainger) craftsmen's solo work. 

If anyone out there can confirm any further details we will gladly give the correct attribution.

A superb collector's piece, sourced from a single owner collection of Yorkshire Critters ashtrays.
