A superb cylinder desk attributed to Gillows

A superb cylinder desk attributed to Gillows. The quality of the craftsmanship and materials used are second to none as is the colour and condition of this handsome desk. Standing on reeded bun feet with inset castors above which are pilasters bordering flame mahogany panel doors, behind is a shelf to one side and sliding pigeon holes to the other. Further up are a pair of frieze drawers and the slide out writing surface all with original rosewood knobs. The cylinder opens to reveal an interior of drawers, pigeon holes and a rising writing area with the original black leather. The top has a brass gallery that retains its gilt lacquer. In very good and original condition. 1090mm high. 1090mm wide and 570mm deep. English. Circa 1815.
