A fine Regency rosewood tambour writing desk in the manner of Gillows of Lancaster. The desk is of rectangular form with an interlocking slatted rosewood tambour top, with elaborate brass loop handles, opening to reveal an arrangement of drawers and pigeon holes with a leather covered retractable writing surface. The frieze with a pair of drawers fitted with rosewood knob handles and bordered by applied rectangular floral cartouches. The desk is supported on classical Gillows turned tapering reeded, with turned rings and leaf and vine decoration to the top and terminating in brass capped castors. An elegant, compact piece, in the modern world eminently suitable to both a writing and computer desk.

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 quality of construction and detailing of this piece may suggest that it is likely that it was indeed made by their Lancaster factory.
Excellent. Minor restorations, cleaning and waxing. The writing leather is an old replacement.
