Rare Regency Rio Rosewood Cushion Seat Bench in the manner of Gillows

Rare Regency Rio Rosewood Cushion Seat Bench in the manner of Gillows

By GILLOWS OF LANCASTER & London

England

circa 1815

The highly figured rio rosewood veneers to the frame have been well chosen and the stool has finely carved solid rosewood tapered legs. The top edge of the seat frame is cross-banded in rosewood offering a contrast to the upholstered drop-in seat which has recently been upholstered with a Gainsborough silk fabric.

Condition

The drop-in seat is of recent manufacture as the original seat frame was warped and not useable.

Literature

It is rare to see a bench made in rosewood and also a drop-in seat from this period.
