A fine early 19th century mahogany pedestal desk attributed to Gillows, having a rectangular top with lobed corners, crossbanded in mahogany and lined with gold tooled faded red leather, above a frieze with one long and two short drawers above three further graduated drawers with replaced brass knob handles, the reverse side fitted similarly, but with dummy drawer to the frieze centre and single doors below, each revealing a single shelf, and flanked by reeded tapering columns terminating in ring turned toes with later brass socket castors.

Note: The locks have at some stage been replaced by high quality Bramah locks of slightly later date. Later castors have been replaced with period design castors. A drawing by Gillows of an earlier version of this desk is preserved in the Westminster City Archive. A desk of virtually identical design was formerly in the collection of HRH The Duke of Kent.

Price: £50,000-£100,000
