This is a very attractive Antique Gillows Writing Table or Desk, in birdseye maple, which our experts have dated to around 1830.

It is always a pleasure to be able to offer such a fine Gillows writing table and although we have been unable to find a Gillows stamp on this antique writing table, we are confident that it is from that much sought-after maker and are confident in attributing it to them.

The standard of craftsmanship bears testimony to this and can clearly be seen from  the various photographs we have included.

This Gillows writing table is compact yet beautiful and very useful, standing as it does at some 74cm high, this functional and elegant table is supported by four elegantly tapered, fluted legs which have been terminated with castors for ease of movement around the room.

The frieze of the desk has a spacious and very useful drawer for your stationery storage requirements, as can be seen from the following photograph.

This is a top quality antique writing table, crafted in the typical Gillows style and featuring a delicately cross-banded birdseye maple writing surface which is worthy of detailed inspection.


The full dimensions for this writing table are as follows:

74cm high x 106cm wide and 56cm deep, (2ft 5in x 3ft 6in x 1ft 10 in).
