Stock ref: DS1616
Circa late 1940s
An excellent example of an earlier made Robert ‘Mouseman’ Thompson 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″ trestle style legs and sledge feet, joined by a pegged and arched stretcher. A good trademark mouse is carved in high relief to one of the legs.
Previously sold by us about three years ago, it still presents in superb condition having been cleaned and re-waxed in our workshop prior to the original sale. We are now re-selling on behalf of the buyer as the piece is not being used.
We originally acquired this piece privately from a Teesdale family estate, the vendor advising it was bought by her late father in about 1960 from a sale held at Ampleforth Abbey/College, togetehr with other Mouseman dining pieces.
