Robert Thompson’s Craftsmen

Robert Thompson was part of the crafts revival of the 1920s, working in North Yorkshire to create oak furniture with a sturdy, classically British appeal. Thompson taught himself to carve and join using traditional tools in order to emulate the English styles of the 17th century – known as ‘Mouseman’ to devotees, many of these meticulously crafted oak wood pieces regularly feature a carved mouse somewhere within their design. Lore has it that the mouse motif came from a discussion between Thompson and a colleague in 1919, during the carving of a screen cornice, of being “as poor as church mice” – the designer carved a mouse upon a whim after this remark. This humble mouse has become a distinctive motif for the brand, enduring into the present day.
