Object Description

A rare and interesting Gillows rosewood library table created in collaboration with George Bullock, the rectangular top with an amboyna panel enclosed by a boulle work brass and ebony border, the frieze with two disguised drawers, the amboyna end supports comprising four turned columns on arched legs and a turned stretcher, all with further counter-part boulle work of scrolls and palmettes, with ornate ormolu castors.

Object Literature

Footnote: Susan Stuart in ‘Gillows of Lancaster and London’ Vol. I, p268, pl . 276, shows a Gonçalo alves writing table with a similar brass border. However this example is more elaborately decorated in boulle work on the legs and feet. The Bullock family had a long standing affiliation with the Gillows company from the 18th century and it is even possible that William Bullock worked as a journeyman for Gillows in Lancaster
