Footnotes

  • Isaac Bradshaw was listed in the Gillows Purchase Ledger accounts 1834-39 (344/79, pp.266, 294-99). He made a mahogany portfolio stand for Ferguson & Co.'s customer Lord Clare in April 1839 (344/104, p.5255, 21.4.1829). He was probably the Isaac Bradshaw who was apprenticed to John Battersby in 1826. See S. Stuart, Gillows of Lancaster and London 1730-1840, p.221.

    Examples of davenports of the same design, but for completion in differing woods can be seen in Gillows Estimate Sketch Books, dated 1840 (ref. 5569 and 5570). For a figured oak three drawer example, stamped Gillows, see 'The Peter Bracewell Collection', Bonhams, London 16 July 2008, lot 127. Another closely related example by Gillows, in mahogany supplied to Sir Charles Tempest Bt. of Broughton Hall, Skipton, Yorkshire in 1841, was offered Sotheby's London, 17 July 1992, lot 168.
