Footnotes

  • The frieze drawer handles on the above lot, along with the small oval paterae within them, are very similar to two different types of brass hardware commonly seen on Gillow pieces between c.1786 and 1800. The drop handle appears identical to one, dated 1786, illustrated in Susan Stuart's "Gillows of Lancaster and London, 1730-1840, Vol II", pl. D9a, p. 335, while the oval paterae appear to more closely follow one which features within a different handle on the same page of Stuart's book, c. 1790-1800, pl. D9b.
