By GILLOWS OF LANCASTER & London
The Regency rosewood ormolu mounted and inlaid cabinet has Egyptian Headed Pilasters and is possibly by Gillows. The rosewood veneered top has unusual convex corners with boxwood string and rosewood cross banding to the frieze. The two full length drawers with later replaced handles are flanked by stunning ormolu mounted Egyptian heads. The pilasters have Greek style stringing inlay and lion-paw feet. The silk pleated cupboard doors stand above the original gilded gadrooned beading that sits on a plinth base.
Note The Egyptian headed pilasters with lion-paw feet reflect the 'antique' influence of Thomas Hope. The convex corners were a popular feature of Gillow furniture around 1812 (J.Hardy and N.Goodison, 'Gillows at Tatton Park', Furniture History, 1970, fig.19b).
It has replaced silk to the door panels and is in very good condition
A very useful small cabinet as it is only 14" deep and has the benefit of two drawers as well as a cupboard.
