Robert ‘Mouseman’ Thompson, 11 1/2” Oak Fruitbowl

Stock ref: DS1140

Circa 1960s

Lovely early example of the wider, shallower fruitbowl with the mouse carved centrally, introduced about 1960. Adzed and in very good used condition, with some minor marks, staining and rubbing / polishing inside the bowl, as expected from normal usage on an older bowl.  Well carved mouse, his tail slightly flattened by rubbing and polishing. No wood splits or repairs. Presents with a lovely patina in a deep nutty brown colour which highlights the graining wonderfully ,particularly in the bowl.

Size: 29(dia) x 6(h) cm.
