Description A Fine Library Table in the manner of Gillows of Lancaster

Constructed in a very fine and distinctively marked Brazilian goncalo alves; of end support form, rising from a scrolled slab base, adorned with lapetting to the toes, lobed feet issuing the supports, which are of severe oblate form, with a double ended tapering ring turned central stretcher, with ring bosses. The ceinture, with paterae tablets, houses two lockable drawers with turned wood pulls, having internal quadrant beading and a running egg and dart moulding and over, a top having radiiused corners.
England, circa 1825

The combination of strong design, confident execution in the carving and cabinet work and concordances with features of Gillows’ designs of this period, along with a drawing in the possession of Lancaster City Museum, for a library layout, number L.M. 55 20/26 executed by Gillows & Co design workshop of 176 Oxford Street, which shows two similar tables, lead to our ascribing the tables to Gillows.
