Description

An English late Regency period rosewood writing or library table, ca 1825. Attributed to Gillows.

A fine quality well figured rosewood veneered end-standard writing table with a green tooled leather writing surface and brass galleried surround. Raised on twin shaped supports. Very much in the fashionable Gillows taste, with two working drawers in the frieze. The quality of turnings, mahogany drawer linings, choice of veneers, and the fitting is superb throughout. This most probably would have been made to commission.

This elegantly drawn antique desk, of larger than usual size, is in perfect state and ready for immediate use. A useful free-standing library table, finished to the back.

Gillows of Lancaster and London, also known as Gillow & Co, was an English furniture making firm based in Lancaster, Lancashire, and in London. It was founded in Lancaster in about 1730 by Robert Gillow (1704–1772). Gillows was owned by the family until 1814 when it was taken over by Redmayne, Whiteside, and Ferguson; they continued to use the Gillow name.
