An Antique Mahogany Bookcase by Gillows of Lancaster
c. 1810 England
Offered by Butchoff
Constructed in mahogany, of breakfront form, rising from a plinth base, the lower section having four blind lockable doors dressed with re-entrant rectangular cock bead mouldings, being flanked by reeded and turned columns; the shelved upper section having two pairs of brass trellis fitted lockable doors, enclosing a shelved interior; the shaped cornice adorned with a carved running Greek key pattern, with raised scrolled ends. Inside a lower door is pasted an old label, on which is written ‘The large bookcase was the property of the Sudell family of Woodfold Park near Blackburn, and was purchased at the great sale of Woodfold about 1840. It was, I believe made by the famous firm of Gillow of Lancaster (Sheraton Period). It came into my possession at the death of my mother Mary H. Whittaker in 1871. Edmund J. Wemyss, Feb18, 1918’.
