A set of 4 handcrafted solid oak bar stools featuring carved octagonal legs joined by stretchers used as footrests, typical exposed pinned joints and studded leather seat tops. In daily use and in super overall condition with good colour, solid joints
and no rips or spilts in the leather. There is minor rubbing to the finish on the footrests and lower legs but it is entirely commensurate with normal everyday usage and one of the leather seat tops has a fading ring stain.
Size: 70cm (h), seat tops 28cm square.

Sid Pollard lived in Bagby, near Thirsk, and was one of Robert Thompson’s early apprentices. His solo work is almost always unmarked, preferring to let his craftsmanship speak for itself. After leaving Thompson’s he combined private commissions with working
for the family building firm, Pollard Builders. His solo work dates from the 40s through to his death in the 1980s.
