This is a beautiful metamorphic English walnut buffet table, from one of the best furniture makers in the world. With three solid walnut tiers which close together seamlessly to create a small library table. Stamped "GILLOW" four times on the underside, this wonderful solid walnut buffet table is in perfect condition with the easy telescoping action working as good now as it did when it was first made in the early 19th Century.
"Papa's luxurious home" full of "rich oriental rugs, luxurious sofa pillows, and everything that isn't old, from Gillows" - so sang Josephine, Captain Corcoran's daughter in Gilbert and Sullivan's comic opera H.M.S. Pinafore from 1878.
