A pair of early 19th century brass mounted mahogany dumb waiters attributed to Gillows, each having two circular tiers mounted with brass pierced Greek key galleries on three bulbous column supports; on a reeded tapering column with three reeded splay legs terminating in brass cap castors.

Note: The mahogany used is of outstanding quality, typical of pieces by Gillows, who imported their own timber in order to maintain a consistently high standard. The metalwork is almost entirely original; the brass wheels were changed at one stage but have been reinstated to the original design. A sketch of an almost identical dumb waiter by Gillows is dated 14 February 1803 and preserved in their Estimate Sketch Book at the Westminster City Archive, London.

Price: £50,000-£100,000
