Antique Gillows Mahogany and Hide Stool
This top quality antique mahogany stool was made by the cabinet makers *Waring and Gillow* in the Chippendale style.
Made in their Lancaster factory, there is a metal makers label attached to one of the seat rails.
The solid mahogany frame has a carved border of scrolls and leaves and stands on bold cabriole legs with similar carving to the knees.
The legs terminate in well carved hairy paw feet.
The stool has been made to the highest standard from top quality timbers and has the original finish.
It has recently been professionally cleaned waxed polished and the drop in seat
has been upholstered in a chestnut coloured hide.
It is in excellent condition and ready for use.
*Waring and Gillow were formed in 1897 by the merger of 'Gillows of Lancaster' and Waring of Liverpool'.
The firm of Gillows of Lancaster can be traced back to the luxury furnishings company
established in 1730 by Robert Gillow. (Wikipedia has further details)
