Wonderful solid oak dining table by Robert ‘Mouseman’ Thomson. The rectangular top having rounded corners and the typical rippled surface created with an adze. Under the top the table stands on a classic trestle end which is peg jointed into position and has a solid oak cross stretcher. Upon one of the legs is the classic carved mouse. Good colour and patination. Would comfortably seat 6 people.

Robert ‘Mouseman’ Thompson of Kilburn, Yorkshire was a prolific maker of the 1930’s producing traditional handcrafted English oak furniture. It is claimed that the mouse motif came about accidentally in 1919 following a conversation about “being as poor as a church mouse”, which took place between Thompson and one of his colleagues during the carving of a cornice for a screen. This chance remark led to him carving a mouse and this remained part of his work from this point onwards. ‘The Mouseman’ has since become known as one of the best craftsmen of the 20th century and his family firm of Robert Thompson’s Craftsmen Ltd still today manufactures the highest quality English oak furniture in Kilburn, using the same traditional techniques and skills.
