2005/19: GILLOWS of LANCASTER: a really lovely quality mid-19th century rosewood WELLINGTON CHEST in very good original condition. Below the well-figured top are twin stiles one of which is hinged and locks to keep six graduated drawers in place. All the drawers have mahogany linings and retain their original turned solid rosewood handles. 49 inches high 24 inches wide and 18 inches deep. *Although not stamped, there are many features here that point to Gillows, notably: the fine quality timber and construction; the threaded wooden handles and in particular the screwed base of the drawer linings allowing it to "move" without splitting the timber.

c.1840
