Regency rosewood & brass inlaid octagonal centre table, probably by Gillows

Stock Code: 2017 - SOLD

Description: A superb Regency rosewood and brass inlaid octagonal centre table, probably made by Gillows of Lancaster. The tilting, well figured octagonal top cross banded with applied convex edge, flower and vine brass inlaid frieze, and with a gadrooned lower moulding. The table is supported by a stepped hexagonal, gadrooned centre column supported on gadrooned, panelled and brass inlaid tri-partite base, with wonderfully bold acanthus carved feet. The table has excellent colour and patina throughout.

Further Information: Gillows of Lancaster were probably the most celebrated of all English furniture makers. They were established in the early 18th century, and pieces made by Gillows are very desirable and extremely sought after. This particular table eschews quality cabinet making all over. With detailing like gadrooning to the centre column and around the base, together with the crisply carved acanthus feet and the general overall fine quality would be indicative of manufacture by Gillows or a top London maker.
