Object Description

An outstanding composite set of twelve George III period satinwood elbow chairs comprising eight identical and four with very minor differences. Almost certainly by Gillows of Lancaster, the finely carved feather splats typical of their output in the 1790’s, in exceptional condition with minor repairs to the supports of one chair.

Object History

For over a century, the firm was known for its luxury furniture and furnishings. During the final years of the 19th century the company ran into financial difficulty and from 1897 began a loose financial arrangement with Waring of Liverpool, an arrangement legally ratified by the establishment of Waring & Gillow in 1903.
