About the object

A Superb Quality George III Period 18th Century Satinwood
Cabinet Having Removable Superstructure With Open Shelves
And Two Cupboard Doors Over Double Depth Secretaire 
Drawer Retaining Original Brass Handles And Pair Of Oval Inlaid
Panel Doors Enclosing Shelves Flanked By Outstanding Turned
Columns Terminating On Elegant Turned Tapering Feet

Firmly Attributed To " Gillows, Lancaster "

(This wonderful quality cabinet can be firmly attributed to the 
renowned Lancaster cabinet making firm of Gillows on the basis
it is of identical form, structure and quality to various other 
examples that have either been sold on the open market or
illustrated in relatively recent times which were either stamped
Gillows, or known to have originated from the,. It is accepted as
fact that Gillows did not stamp, or sign, a large proportion of the 
output from their Lancaster workshops. In terms of the piece itself
there is no doubt that it is of the utmost quality using wonderful 
satinwood that would have been incredibly expensive to buy
at the end of the 18th century when it was only just starting to be 
shipped into UK shores.)
