Description An elegant English early 19th century Regency period partners desk or library table in mahogany, in the manner of Gillows of Lancaster and London,

circa 1820.

Why it is special
This table has probably the best reeded legs we have ever seen. Their elegant simplicity make the table super smart and masculine. Its elegant proportions, large size and drawers on all sides make it indispensable in a library or study.

With eight frieze drawers and four faux drawers, on turned and reeded tapering legs with brass caps and castors.

The table, with Egyptian reed-wreathed legs, is designed in the early 19th Century 'French antique' fashion promoted by the connoisseur Thomas Hope (d.1832) and popularised by R. Ackermann's Repository of Arts, 1810. This distinctive design was introduced by the Gillows firm in the early 19th century and dominated their production in the 1820s and 1830s.
