The two smaller tables are both the same size, fitting neatly under the larger table.

         2 x small tables  10 3/4" (w) x 11 1/2" (d) x 15" (h),    27.5 x 29 x 38(h) cm.

Excellent provenance, part of a substantial collection of Sid's furniture i have acquired from the original local owners, who were personal friends of his, and who had all the items made to order between 1970 and 1980. They are only reluctantly selling due to emigrating shortly.

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 be known for being unknown. After leaving Thompsons he combined his solo work with the family building firm, Pollard Builders. His solo work dates from the 40's through to his death in the early 80's.
