circa 1815 - 1825
Early 19th century Regency side table.
The rectangular top with re-entrant corners and butterfly matched veneers retains a great colour and patina. The fixed top sits above a shallow moulded frieze supported on trestle ends.
The trestle end supports are made in the solid and are crisply carved with scrolls, gadrooned turnings and baluster uprights.
The table is raised on concealed gilt brass castors and is almost certainly made by Gillows of London and Lancaster.
Gillows of Lancaster and London, also known as Gillow & Co., was a pre-eminent English furniture making firm based in Lancaster, and in London. It was founded around in Lancaster in 1730 by Robert Gillow. The name Gillows soon become synonymous with quality workmanship and stylish designs. Gillows was owned by the family until 1814 when it was taken over by Redmayne, Whiteside, and Ferguson who continued to use the Gillow name. Gillows furniture remained a byword for quality and remained one of the most prominent UK cabinetmakers for over 250 years. Other designers also used Gillows to manufacture their furniture.
