An extremely well drawn 19th century figured walnut deep buttoned leather upholstered chesterfield in the manner of Gillows.

Having beautifully pronounced shaped scrolling arms and shaped breakfront edge this fine chesterfield has been upholstered in a very good quality deep buttoned hand dyed leather hyde. Dating to circa 1860-1880.

The elegant design has a sprung deep buttoned seat, back and arms making this a very comfortable chesterfield.
The front turned legs being made of solid figured walnut retaining their original refurbished gilt brass castors with the same to the rear.

Although not stamped we feel this chesterfield can be attributed to Gillows of Lancaster as the quality and design is first class having a good heavy frame, we also have images available of an almost identical turned walnut chesterfield leg of the same quality stamped Gillows for reference.

A superb quality chesterfield having the sought after rare scrolling arms upholstered in a stunning hand dyed leather with brass studwork.

A very desirable chesterfield to any private individual with a discerning eye or collector alike.

Gillows of Lancaster and London, also known as Gillow & Co. was an English furniture making firm based in Lancaster, Lancashire, and in London. It was founded in Lancaster in about 1730 by Robert Gillow (1704–1772).
By the mid-18th century the firm was one of the leading cabinet-makers in Lancaster. They had a reputation for manufacturing very high quality furniture.
By the end of the 1700s most of the firm's partners were based in London
Gillows furniture was a byword for quality, and other designers used Gillows to manufacture their furniture. Gillows furniture is referred to by Jane Austen, Thackeray and the first Lord Lytton, and in one of Gilbert and Sullivan's comic operas
