Robert ‘Mouseman’ Thompson Bespoke Early Oak Hall Stand

Stock ref: DS1993

Circa 1930s/early 40s

A superb  statement piece of early Mouseman bespoke commissioned for a family relative, a solid english oak Hall Stand from the Kilburn workshops of Robert Thompson. It's a striking and imposing piece, standing 6'6" tall and 3'10" wide and will look fabulous in a hall way or country kitchen. Features a signature penny moulded top above an adzed panelled back  inset with a mirror and 6 hat / coat pegs, surrounded by arts and crafts chip carved detailing. The seat base with two open stick/umbrella holders, a lift up seat with compartments inside and a panelled front and sides, standing on octagonally carved feet. A trademark mouse carved beautifully in high relief  to the front upright.

Superb condition with deep chestnut brown darker fumed colour tones. We've photographed it in 'as purchsed' condition, we will be carefully cleaning off the slight paint splahes which are mostly to the rear and waxing the piece prior to purchase by its new owners.

Provenance: commissioned for Percy Cartwright's sister & hence by family/relative decent. ( Percy(1900-1988) married Robert Thompson's only child, Elsie(1906-1994), their children and grandchildren in turn taking over the family business which continues today.)

Size: 117(w) x 40(d) x 197.5(h)cm
