A fine Regency burr walnut Davenport attributed to Gillows of Lancaster, bearing retailers stamp M Willson, 68 Great Queen St retaining excellent original colour & patina. The sloping rectangular top with inset writing leather, with turned walnut three quarter gallery, opening to reveal 2 interior drawers and a double dummy drawer below, on the right hand side a pen and ink drawer folds open and through 90 degrees. The whole top slides forward to allow easier access for writing. Below on the left side a retractable document shelf, with dummy drawers below, to the opposite side three mahogany lined drawers all fitted with Bramah locks. To the front and back of the lower section is a rectangular inset panel. The Davenport stands on gadrooned walnut feet. A very good looking piece, with particularly good choice of burr veneers throughout, the Davenport is in excellent original condition.

The cabinet-maker Thomas Willson established a furniture broking business at 68 Great Queen Street in 1818, and his wife Mary's brand of M.Willson appears to have been adopted from 1821. From 1830 the firm traded as Mary Willson and Son, and from 1838 it was carried on by Matthew Wilson. Gillows were reputed to supply M. Wilson as well as their own retail outlet in London, stamping pieces as appropriate.
Excellent. Minor old restorations, cleaning and waxing. The writing leather appears to be an old replacement.
From a private residence in Wiltshire.
English, Regency, George III, circa 1825
