The underside of the top drawer signed by cabinetmaker “John Miller” and dated July 1830.

Gillows of Lancaster were probably the most celebrated of all English furniture makers. They were established in the early 18th century, and pieces made by Gillows are very desirable and extremely sought after. The first piece of this ilk was made by Gillows for a Capt Davenport, in the late 18th century, the design permeated to other makers and became a very popular piece for the aristocracy.
Excellent. Restorations to chipped veneers and loose mouldings, cleaning and waxing. The writing leather has been replaced.
