Robert ‘Mouseman’ Thompson Oak Settle

Stock ref: DS1813

Circa 1940s

An unusual and  wonderfully coloured and patinated solid oak Settle / Monks Bench from the workshops of Robert 'Mouseman' Thompson of Kilburn. Most likely to have been commissioned for a church, convent or monestery originally it is solid, heavy and adzed all over including the rear and insides of the side panels. There is evidence a carved inscription has been chiselled out in the past from the rail under the seat. A beautifully detailed mouse is  carved incised into lower front section of one side. 

Excellent colour and condition, just  a small chip loss to the lower  foot area of one front side panel and minor usage scratches to the seat back.

Size: 70(w) x 50(d) x 99.5(h)cm
