Gillows tag sells étagère

15 June 2004Written by ATG Reporter

ALTHOUGH there were no blockbuster entries in Richardson & Smith's (10% buyer's premium) 841-lot May 20-21 outing, with pictures securing most of the top prices, the highlight was a kingwood, amboyna and burr marquetry inlaid étagère by Gillows of Lancaster.

Its oval Vitruvian scrolled top with ormolu galleried rim was echoed on a lower tier that rested on four shaped, ormolu-mounted legs.

Its quality and celebrated manufacturer ensured it generated interest from several parties and it realised £3000.
