Description
An extremely fine Victorian kidney shaped marquetry writing table by Gillows of Lancaster, 1860.  The desk is Burr walnut with a tooled leather writing surface, frieze drawer with ormolu mounts and stands on cabriole legs terminating in sabot feet. The Marquetry work of flora and fauna on the desktop is exquisite! It is like tiny works of very fine art of the best quality. The colours of the inlay have somewhat dulled over time leaving them with a warm Autumnal feel befitting of the subject. The legs have ornate cherubic ormolu mounts and the surface of the desk is profusely inlaid. This is a stunning writing desk of outstanding quality and has the Gillows stamp on the frieze drawer. There is small area of missing ormolu on the back leg and a section of misshapen ormolu as you can see in the photos. Height - 73cm x Width - 116cm x Depth - 60cm
