‘Tower Corners’ were a particular feature of Gillows’ production from about 1790 and by 1800, were decorated with carved reeding. This piece is also stamped for Edwards & Roberts. Edwards & Roberts was founded in 1845, and by 1854 were trading as ‘Edwards & Roberts, Antique and Modern Cabinet Makers and Importers of Ancient Furniture’. … They also retailed many items of second-hand furniture, so an Edwards & Roberts stamp does not necessarily mean that the item was made by them. In this case, the compactum was quite old by the time its stamp had been inserted; the design is very typical of Gillows ‘house style’ and would have been a special commission to suit a particular client’s needs. 1.82m wide; 0.585 deep; 1.06m tall
