Robert ‘Mouseman’ Thompson Very Early Oak Double Wardrobe

Stock ref: DS2077

Circa mid 1920s

A rare and beautifully patinated 1920s made example of a 4'(w) x 5'6"(h) solid oak Robert 'Mouseman' Thompson Double Wardrobe. Made during the period when Robert was still developing his initial domestic furniture range and refining his distinctive design style, and had only approximately 6 craftsmen working with him at Kilburn. Fully adzed and panelled all over with an unusual wave and dot carved frieze running along the top front edge, and very distinctive curved 'bat wing' wrought iron hinges and sprung door latch. The interior is very clean and fitted with a clothes rail to the left and a range of useful shelves and graduated drawers to the right.

Excellent overall condition, rich aged colour and a large mouse carved in low relief to the lower front left.

Size: 122(w) x 60(d incl. door fitting) x 167(h)cm
