A very fine Exhibition quality West Indian carved satinwood glazed cabinet attributed to Waring and Gillow, the Wedgwood porcelain plaque dated 1900 and the highly unusual sterling silver handles and astragal mounts dated London 1902. This bookcase conforms to the ‘house style’ developed by Gillows in the late 18th century. The ‘turret corners’ and ‘crotched (and bookmatched) veneers’ all point to this attribution and suggest an item created to show the best qualities of Gillows’ furniture c1800.
