Robert Thompson ‘Mouseman’ Rare Burr Oak 14 1/2” Square Planter

Stock ref: DS1312

Circa 1950s

Certainly very rare and quite possibly a unique burr oak square Robert Thompson  'Mouseman' planter, being offered for sale on behalf of the local family whose parents are known to have owned it from new. Superbly constructed from substantial 1 1/4" thick burr oak timbers on all four sides and handcrafted in true Arts and Crafts style, sitting on 2 sledge feet with a very distictive and finely carved mouse incised to the front facing side panel . It weighs 9kg and  will accomodate a large  10" diameter pot making it ideal for showcasing specimen plants in the home. The exterior presents in superb condition and there is no evidence of damage or previous repair.  The interior is very clean and  as expected the base shows evidence of past usage as intended as a planter.

Size: 37(w) x 37(d) x 30.5(h)cm.
