Stock ref: DS1273
Circa late 1940s
An excellent example of an earlier made Mouseman Robert thompson’s bench seat. Adzed to all visible surfaces in line with early manufacture the 1 1/2″ thick single plank top sits on 1 3/4″ thick carved trestle style legs and sledge feet, joined
by a pegged and arched stretcher. Recently symathetically cleaned and re-waxed in our workshop to retain it’s natural deep aged colour it presents in superb condition. A good trademark mouse is carved in high relief to one of the legs.
Privately acquired from a family estate, the vendor believes it was bought by her late father in about 1960 from a sale held by Ampleforth Abbey / College, together with a 5′ bench seat (stock ref DS1259) and a dowel topped table (stock ref: DS1272
– awaiting preparation for sale.)
