Lot Essay

This distinctived large-scale 'GILLOW' stamp can be categorically dated as it is also seen on the oak chairs supplied by Gillow in 1851 for the Houses of Parliament, based on a pattern chair made by Crace to an A.W.N. Pugin design (illustrated in S. Stuart, 'A Survey of Marks, Labels and Stamps used on Gillow and Waring & Gillow Furniture 1770-1960', Regional Furniture, vol. XII, 1998, figs.12 and 13.)

A closely related whatnot by Gillows in 'Goncalo alves' or satinwood was sold from the collection of Graham Watson, Heaton Rise, Bradford, Bonhams Leeds, 4 February 2003 for £8,200 plus premium.
