Robert Mouseman Thompson 1930s Large Stool / Occasional TableCirca Early 1930s
An excellent example of a rare, large and early made oak Three Legged Cow Stool or Occasional Table from the KIliburn workshops of Robert Mouseman Thompson. Features a large kidney / palette shaped 2" thick single piece top, specifically selected for its rare and characterful finely feathered burr graining. Its adzed to both sides in line with the very earliest craftsmanship, prioir to Robert Thompsons purchase of a planing machine in the later 1930s. The top is relatively flat and not dished like the later made and smaller cow / calf stools, making it ideal for use as an occasional or side / lamp table. Supported on three strong and sturdy octagonally carved and fully adzed splayed legs, wedge jointed through the top with a lovely typical early mouse carving to one leg.
Excellent condition and deep aged colour, the top with expected minor age related wood splits (not deep into the 2" thick top) with a small shallow area of surface scratching loss on the edge of the top which is shown clearly in many of the images in the gallery below. Its also shown next to a 1970s made 18" cow stool so that clients can see the size and scale of the piece, which we are advised originates from an estate in Ripon, North Yorkshire.
Size: 49(w) x 41(d) x 47(h)cm
