A wonderful example of a highly sought after, richly coloured and patinated early dining set from Robert Mouseman Thompson, comprising a 5′ dining table with two carver armchairs and four dining chairs.
The table features adzing to all parts including the underside table supports, legs, feet and stretchers and a large mouse is carved to one leg. The three plank top is fox tongue dowel jointed with no joint splitting. Free from any significant staining just the expected light surface scratching associated with normal usage over the years. Darker fumed from new after a clean and re-wax in our workshop it presents with a superb rich chestnut toned colour and aged patina.
The panel backed chairs are adzed all over including the rear and the bottom of the front legs have the ‘centre pop marks’, all as expected on chairs of this age. All the joints are tight and there are invoices from R. Thompson’s dated 1998 to confirm the chairs were re-foamed, leathered and the webbing tightened/replaced as required. The leather remains in excellent unmarked condition.
