The lyre ends of this table are a typical feature of Gillows of Lancaster. A very closely related table in rosewood is illustrated in Susan Stuart’s book, “Gillows of London and Lancaster, 1730-1840”. The star handles are another Gillows feature. A table of identical form with these handles can be found in the library at Shugborough Hall, Staffordshire, illustrated in Country Life, 2 September 1971, p.547. Shugborough was remodelled at the beginning of the nineteenth century by the architect Samuel Wyatt, and the Shugborough table has been traditionally been attributed to Gillows on the grounds of their close ties to the Wyatt architectural dynasty.
