Gillows: Mahogany Work / Sewing Table, (1825-35)
Gillows of Lancaster: A very attractive a superb quality mahogany Work / Sewing Table.
Below the finely figured solid mahogany top are three drawers. To either side is a solid mahogany lined drawer, one fitted for sewing accessories, the other left open. Both with original brass locks, key escutcheons and turned wooden knobs. Below these drawers is a plain frieze with an egg and dart beaded edge. Further below is a deep cream coloured pleated silk-lined ‘wool drawer’ for storing ‘ongoing work’ and balls of wool etc.
The whole top is supported on two carved and reeded column-legs, of familiar design and typical of Gillows craftsmanship, each leads to a squared full-depth stretcher with beaded edges and scroll feet, and with original brass castors.
Good patina and colour. Highly recommended.
