Early Robert 'Mouseman' Thompson Cheeseboard - (1930/1940's)
Description:A typical early example of a carved solid oak cheeseboard, with a 'plump' trademark mouse on the board. The mouse sitting on the board, rather than the handle, is very indicative of the mouseman early period. Board has had very little use (a few small light knife cuts to the surface), which does not in any way detract from its appearance. Colour and patina are excellent with a waxed finish. This shape is the standard oval design. Dimensions are height 5cm, length 37.5cm, width 18cm.
