Circa early 1960s
A superb and rare early Wilf Hutchinson ‘Squirrelman’ Oak Writing Bureau. Features a fall front writing desk with inner compartments and 2 short over 2 long graduated drawers below, all with traditional wrought iron fittings and working locks. The sides and back are panelled and the whole piece is extensively adzed, in line with early craftsmanship and the skills Wilf acqiuired whilst at Robert Thompson’s when Robert was still alive in the early 50s.
Excellent condition and colour with very minor marking on the top commensurate with normal use. Wilf’s early carved signature squirrel to the top side panel.
Previously sold by ourselves in early 2014 and recently bought back from the client in exchange for another piece in our stock.
