Wilf ‘Squirrelman’ Hutchinson Oak Candelabra

Stock ref: DS1933

Circa 1960s/70s

An unusual and  wonderful example of a Candelabra from the Husthwaite workshop of the Mouseman trained craftsman Wilf 'Squirrelman' Hutchinson. Hand carved from a solid block of english oak it stands on a large square base, carved leaf forms to the corners  rise  to form a central  octagonally carved and tapering stem. Towatds the top the stem  splits to form three branches on which sit traditional wrought iron candle sconces. Wilf's trademark squirrel is carved sitting prominently to the lower front of the piece which presents in excellent condition  and colour following a clean and wax, the only evidence of prior usage being some small minor knocks to the central stem.

Wilf is sadly no longer with us but the business remains in the capable hands of his son Trevor.

Size: 11.2(w) x 11.2(d) x 36(h)cm. Candle hole dia 12-13mm.
