Robert ‘Mouseman’ Thompson Oak Early 12” Breadboard

Stock ref: DS1672

Circa 1930s

A beautiful aged and richly coloured and patinated early breadboard from the Kilburn workshops of Robert 'Mouseman' Thompson. Whilst of the same overall size as currently made breadboard the early made examples feature adzing to both top and underside, a  considerably larger upper board surface area and are carved from a thicker block of solid oak. Lovely  detailed early mouse carving to one faceted edge. Used as a display piece for most of its life there is very little marking to the board itself and just a small minor chip loss where the lower corner section has rubbed against it's display stand.

Size: 30.5(w) x 25(d) x 2.5(h)cm
