Robert Thompson ‘Mouseman’ Early Oak Cheeseboard

Stock ref: DS1419

Circa 1940s/50s

A lovely example of the much sought after earlier made Cheeseboard with the mouse carved onto the board instead of the handle. Production of this model ceased in about 1960 when the mouse carving was moved to the handle  in order to strengthen it as it which was prone to breakage. Clearly well used over the years with knife cuts and scrubbing marks and  but it now has a rich depth of colour  and aged patina. Adzed to the upper and lower surface. The mourse carving is excellent with just some evidence of rubbing to the tail from years of cleaning the board.

Size:  35.5(l) x 18(w) x 3.5(h)
