We are pleased to be able to offer you this attractive and functional Burr Walnut Writing Table or Desk which has been made in the desirable Gillows style.
Representing superb value at £1,975, this writing table has been made by craftsmen using carefully selected burr walnut that has a very striking grain and which has been further enhanced with a leather hand-tooled inset gilded writing surface.
You can see from the photographs below that this writing table is fitted with three drawers for you to store your stationery and other office or personal items. Please also take special note of the fact that this desk has been finished on all sides and can be used anywhere in a room without the need to place it against a wall.
The legs are, as you can see, very elegant and have been terminated with brass castors making it easy to move the writing table around as you need to which makes it not just a symbol of refinement but a practical item of furniture as well.
This style of table is often attributed to Gillows of Lancaster who were very successful furniture makers and retailers throughout the 18th and 19th centuries. They ran into financial difficulties in the latter years of the 19th century and formed a non-formal arrangement with Warings of Liverpool which was eventually formalised in 1903 and led to the formation of Waring and Gillow.
