    Circa 1960. Rare outsized octagonal dining table by Squirrelman Hutchinson (one of the “Yorkshire critters”). The 4cm thick adzed solid hexagonal top in a beautifully figured quarter-cut oak with lovely colour and patina. Supported on a pedestal base with 4 shaped supports chamfered platforms, with a squirrel carved in one. Will comfortably seat 8 diners.

     
    The Yorkshire Critters or Critter Carvers comprise of over 40 craftsman, working from the 1940s to the present day, who made oak furniture inspired by Robert “Mouseman” Thompson of Kilburn Yorkshire. Many of these Critter Carvers actually trained in Thompson’s Kilburn workshop before setting up their own craft shops. Using the same oak material, traditional hand tools and traditional; techniques (especially adzed surfaces) as Mouseman Thompson, each craftsman created a signature carved ‘critter’ such as an animal (woodpecker, squirrel or beaver, i.e. Woodpeckerman, Squirrelman or Beaverman), acorn or human icon (e.g. Knight or Viking) to decorate and act as a signature and identify their oak pieces. The historical significance of Mouseman Thompson’s designs and style, the fine craftmanship, functional nature and beauty of Yorkshire Critter Carver’s oak furniture is enduring, and is reflected in the continued demand and robust prices for these items
    Ex-Mouseman craftsman Wilf 'Squirrelman' Hutchinson established his own business in Husthwaite near Thirsk in 1957

    Georgian Antiques

    Georgian Antiques was founded in 1978 by John Dixon's brother Padriac in a small shop at Jocks Lodge, Meadowbank in Edinburgh, with John joining the business after finishing college in 1981. The business grew so rapidly, they couldn't keep up with their inventory needs. Their goal has been to create a one-stop-shop where designers can complete an entire project from antique lighting to antique furniture to accessories. Scotland's largest antiques warehouse is located in a converted whiskey bond in historic Leith Edinburgh. With 50,000sq ft over five floors we offer a wide range of quality Georgian, Victorian and Edwardian furniture, as well as continental and small decorative items. Our stock is constantly changing.
