Robert ‘Mouseman’ Thompson, Oak Early Ashtray

Stock ref: DS1223

Circa 1930s / early 40s

An early Mouseman ashtray, characterised by the shallower but larger bowl diameter than is seen on 50s onwards  ashtrays and the distinctive signature mouse carved onto the piece. ( See the image gallery below for comparison of the bowl diameter between a pre war and post war ashtray).  Lovely condition with a deep consistent colour and patina and just  one small burnish to the bowl.  The mouse is especially large, finely carved with a distinctive face and very high back.

Size: 10.2(w) x 7.4(d) x 4 (h)
