Rare to the market these very early Robert ‘Mouseman’ Thompson Rectangular Tea / Serving Trays are always highly sought after by collectors.
This example presents in superb condition and with a beatiful deep aged colour. It remains usable as originally intended or as a decorative piece. Two lovely early carved mice handles with the slimmer elongated necks and heads. Subtle adzing and hand tooling to all upper surfaces, no damage, losses or significant staining, just the expected scratching to the underside and slight bowing, all normal and commensurate with the trays age and careful everyday usage.
