Gillows Georgian Mahogany Ladies Writing Table (England, circa 1780)

£2,950.00
A very good quality late 18th century Georgian mahogany
ladies writing table having well figured top with original
brass gallery and one frieze drawer to end plus two false
drawers raised on elegant square tapering legs.

" Stamped Gillows, Lancaster "

(This delightful table has several unusual features including its
delightfully small size and the original brass gallery to the top. It
also has one long drawer to the end which of course from a practical
perspective means that if being sat the user would not be in their own
way when attempting to open the drawer. It is also nice to see the false
drawer fronts to the front and opposite end which is a feature
designed to make it look elegant no matter where somebody chooses
to position in own a room. The back is neatly finished and veneered as
well which means it is perfect for central standing. The elegant brass
handles are probably later replacements, but are through the original
handles holes and of the style that would have been in place originally
as are the replacement brass castors. Finally the table is of course stamped
Gillows of Lancaster whom are one of the most famous English furniture
makers in history.).
