A fine Regency mahogany and brass inlaid writing desk, probably by Gillows of Lancaster. The shaped rectangular top, cross banded, brass strung and with gadrooned edge. A central frieze drawer is bordered by a pair of spiral turned columns with carved top section and reeded feet, above a pair of cross banded and beaded cupboard doors. To each wing, four graduated bow fronted, brass inlaid, drawers, flanked each side by a further similar column. The top right hand drawer fully fitted. A wonderful looking, superb quality practical piece, retaining excellent 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 out-stepped pillars, despite not having the hallmark fluted reeding, instead a spiral reed; and the overall superb quality of construction and choice of veneers, heavily point to this pieces attribution to Gillows.
Excellent. Possible minor old restorations, waxing.
Private residence Lake Erie, Chicago, USA.
