The design for this Gillows writing table can be found in Susan E Stuart's book 'Gillows of Lancaster and London'
This well proportioned English antique partners writing table or library table has three drawers to either side of the top. It has recently been fitted with a new black hide writing surface with gilt and blind tooling.
Date: circa 1850
The table was probably made by the London firm of H Lawford who were known for producing furniture in the Louis XV style and this design is similar to those they made in the late 19th century.
