Robert 'Mouseman' Thompson Yorkshire School Oak Fire Surround

SKU0020104

Features

Robert 'Mouseman' Thompson Yorkshire School adzed oak mantle and supports with twin carved mice, on later fire surround. The Mouseman mantle and supports appear from their style and colour to be of a good age. The Rest of the surround matches well to give a good effect, but is considerably more modern and made to a much lower standard than the Mouseman elements. We have reflected this in our asking price

Comment

A very unusual item, which would provide a very attractive focal point to any room
