Robert ‘Mouseman’ Thompson Early Burr Oak Single Bed

No Comments

Stock ref: DS1632

Circa 1930s

 A superb early Robert ‘Mouseman’ Thompson Burr oak panelled 3′ Single Bed, one of a matched pair we have privately acquired (see DS1633)  which have been in the same family ownership from new. Penny moulded tops and extensively adzed to all visible surfaces including the oak side frames and complete with its original ‘plyastic’ metal sprung mattress base. An excellent mouse is carved in high relief to the upper right side of the footboard (looking at it from the end of the bed). The wooden side frames are easily detached for transport and are individually marked to ensure they are assembled correctly. The markings are different on each bed to ensure they are not mixed up.

Cleaned and wax polished in our workshop it presents in superb condition with a rich fumed and aged colour, ready to use.

Excellent provenance, privately acquired directly from the  surviving family of the former timber merchant and oak supplier in the pre and post war period to Robert Thompson, together with a professional house contents insurance valuation dated 1943, confirming the early age of this and other bedroom furniture pieces we have purchased  from this estate. Full details can be provided to the purchaser.

Offered for sale singly but, of course, we would love the two beds to remain together if possible and will be pleased to discuss pricing for the pair. 

Size: 197(l) x 99(w) x 99(h)cm. It will  fit a UK standard 6’3″ / 190cm mattress.
