Constructed in a very fine and distinctively marked Brazilian Rosewood; of end support form, rising from a scrolled slab base, adorned with lapetting to the toes, lobed feet issuing the supports, which are of severe oblate form, with a double ended tapering ring turned central stretcher, with ring bosses. The ceinture, with paterae tablets, houses two lockable drawers with turned wood pulls, having internal quadrant beading, and a running egg and dart moulding and over, a top having radiiused corners.

The combination of strong design, confident execution in the carving and cabinet work, and concordances with features of Gillows’ designs of this period, along with a drawing in the possession of Lancaster City Museum, for a library layout, number L.M. 55 20/26 executed by Gillows & Co design workshop of 176 Oxford Street, which shows two similar tables, lead to our ascribing the tables to Gillows.
