Description Presenting an absolutely gorgeous early 19th century English chiffonier or breakfast buffet, most likely, from the renowned maker of Gillows of Lancaster.

This stunning piece is elegant simplicity at it’s best with the most gorgeous natural age and patina to its surface and stunning details.

We estimate this to be from circa 1800-1810.

It is made of the most beautiful Cuban flame mahogany with stunning natural patina. The top gallery has a gorgeous brass galleried edging. The top shelf is connected and sits on 4 beautifully cast brass tulip pattern support columns. The back of the central shelf is mirrored. The front is likewise, stunning in its detail and quality. The base is comprised of 4 matching presses or cupboards (each with 3 shelves) with creme silk lining, behind a brass fretwork exterior. The front has 4 regency pillars each topped with a brass plinth which is replicated at the base. Each column has a carved floral design on top of each column.

We are of the expert opinion that this is a piece by the top-maker, Gillows of Lancaster. Everything about this piece screams …. ’Gillows”. It is not marked or signed but is exactly like a number of pieces that have been unequivocally attributed to Gillows …… right down to the curved brass fretwork on the front of the press doors.

This is a really, really quality piece!
