Royal House Antiques is delighted to offer for sale this very rare set of six Burr Oak 1930's Robert Mouseman Thompson dining chairs in fully restored condition. These chairs have been fully restored, all the original woven seats had dried and perished over the last 90-100 years of use, there weren't safe to use, as such I have had all the woven leather replaced on every chair, it took 3-4 hides of thick veg tan plain leather which was hand dyed back to the original chestnut brown colour, I have a complete suite of pictures of the entire process. The frames have been glued and clamped where required, treated for insects as a matter of process not need, then deep cleaned waxed and polished. The timber on these chairs is a bit of a lottery jackpot, they have the original scalloped backs which is basically the honeycombed look and feel, but these panels are all burr oak.
The timber is super rare, highly collectable and the finest of all the Mouseman pieces. Height:- 90.5cm, seat height 46cm. Height:- 98cm seat height 46cm, arm height 70.5cm. Depth:- 57cm, arm depth 63.5cm. Please note all measurements are taken at the widest point, if you would like any additional or specific measurements, please ask.
