VERY RARE ROBERT THOMPSON 1935 MONK CARVERS- Early Mouseman Hand-carved Chairs
Two Monk armchairs also known as carvers, made from English oak from the Robert (Mouseman) Thompson workshop in Yorkshire. Chairs were carved in the golden era of 1935 which is known as'early' Mouseman. They are part of a commissioned wedding set. The back of one carver has the emblem of Ampleforth Abbey where Robert Thompson received his first major commission from the Benedictine monks.

The other carver has the back carved with the harp of King David commemorating the family name of the groom which was King. The Yorkshire english rose and the fleur de lys are carved on the sides of each chair. These carvers are the magnificent centerpiece of the whole dining set which has been listed separately.

The leather seats are in amazing shape and stand out remarkably in comparison to others of this vintage. That is because the owners always had a cushion on top of the leather which protected them from wear. Beeswax was applied on a yearly basis to the wood to maintain luster and to keep the wood from drying out. This to show how rare 1935 Mouseman has become and how valuable.
