Antique Furniture by Gillows.
Gillows of Lancaster furniture or later know as Waring and Gillow produced some of the finest pieces of English antique furniture. They were established from 1731 founded by Robert Gillow. He served his apprenticeship as a joiner and cabinet maker. When he died his firm was taken over by his two sons Richard and Robert Gillow and they expanded the business to London. They had a reputation of supplying superb quality furniture, using only the finest materials and their own unique designs. They participated in many international exhibitions and furnished many important houses and supplied several Royal homes.
In 1903 Gillows joined forces with the company Waring of Liverpool and the firm became known as Waring and Gillows.
The stamp GILLOWS LANCASTER first appeared on furniture in the 1780s. By ca.1850 GILLOW is found stamped on pieces. By the end of the 19th Century GILLOW & Co is often found, and Waring and Gillow was continued up to the 1950’s. Some pieces that were not made for a special order would be stamped with the letter L for Lancaster and would follow numbers.
