A fine quality Regency period bird's eye maple writing table signed 'Gillow'. Susan Stuart writes: 'Several tables with 'spindle ends' were drawn in the Estimate Sketch Books from 1818'. She illustrates an example (pl.329, pp.301 Vol.I), as does Ralph Fastnedge and Margaret Jourdain in 'Regency Furniture' 1795-1830, CL Ltd 1965, fig.161 pp.72. This design was a favourite standard end profile for writing and work tables made by Gillow for over 10 years.
