Lot Essay

The elegant sofa table can be attributed to Gillows of London and Lancaster who made particular use of downswept end-supports with scrolled 'claws'. A calamander-banded writing table by Gillows with almost identical ends filled with spindles above a lozenge panel is illustrated in G. Wills, Craftsmen and Cabinet-Makers of Classic English Furniture, Edinburgh, 1974, pp. 117-118, figs. 108-109. It closely relates to a sketch dated 1818 in folio 2087 of the firm's Estimate Sketch Books.
