On the 15th June last year, we travelled down to the delightful town of Ilkley in West Yorkshire and purchased this sideboard. Measuring at a whopping 91 inches in length, the fully adzed burr oak sideboard was made by Robert ‘Mouseman’ Thompson in the early 1930’s.
While, the hammer eventually fell at £20,000 for the item (breaking a UK record in the process), even the slightest glance towards the sideboard can leave you speechless. We find it fascinating that craftsman can make such impressive items!
Therefore, rare pieces like this sideboard showcase why we at Ingnet are so passionate towards the work of Yorkshire Oak craftsman Robert ‘Mouseman’ Thompson.
Here’s to seeing another one in my life time!
