Robert 'Mouseman' Thompson Rare Early Pipe Tray - 1920's
Price: £ Sold
Description: A really excellent and very rare example of an early Mousey Thompson twin pipe tray, with the well defined trademark mouse by an early mouseman carver. The very rich golden colour, and slightly rustic appearance is indicative of its maturity. The lightly adzed mouse with its small head and high back is indicative of this period. In excellent condition with waxed finish, and developed a great patina with the characteristic 'aged' colour of golden fumed oak. Base dimensions 11cm x 12.5cm.
