Lot Essay

In 1812 Gillows, renowned for their high-quality mahogany furniture, supplied eight similar luggage-stands with reeded legs to Wilbraham Egerton for Tatton Park, Cheshire. They cost £1 16s 0d. each (see N. Goodison and J. Hardy, 'Gillows at Tatton Park', Furniture History, 1970, pp. 11 and 12, fig. 14A).
In the first quarter of the 19th Century, with the 'advent of comfort', Gillows of London and Lancaster supplied many country houses, such as Nostell Priory, with bedroom furniture. These items included luggage-stands, dressing-tables, mirrors, stools, chests-of-drawers, clothes-presses and four-post beds, often supplied in large quantities, which would explain the slight variations in the present lot.
