Robert Thompson ‘Mouseman’ Oak 5’ Bench Seat

No Comments

Stock ref: DS1259

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 Teesdale 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 2’6″  bench seat (stock ref DS1273) and a 5′ dowel topped dining
table (stock ref: DS1272 – awaiting preparation for sale.)

Size: 152(w) x 35.5(d) x 46(h)
