A fine Regency figured walnut Davenport in the manner of Gillows of Lancaster. The sloping rectangular top with inset writing leather, opening to reveal a satin birch interior with 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 each opposite side a retractable document shelf, with three drawers below and opposing dummy drawers. To the front and back of the lower section is an arched inset walnut panel. The Davenport stands on turned walnut feet. A lovely piece of compact dimensions and excellent original colour and patina.

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 desirable piece for the aristocracy.
Excellent. Minor old restorations, cleaning and waxing. The writing leather appears to be in the region of 75 years old.
From a private residence in Shropshire
