The stamp of 'GILLOWS . LANCASTER' is recorded on a related reed-enriched dressing-table, but with low 'rims' supplied in 1811 for Parlington Hall (C. Gilbert, Furniture at Temple Newsam House and Lotherton Hall, Leeds, 1978, No. 500). A related wash-stand with lidded compartment at the rear edge and 'turned reeded legs' is likely to have been amongst the Gillows furniture supplied to William (1792-1842), 3rd Earl of Darlington for Cleveland House, 19 St James's Square and sold by his descendent, at Raby Castle, Christie's house sale, 10 October 1994, lots 120 and 137.
