Very Large Walnut Bookcase Cabinet by Gillow & Co. c.1880.

Lots of useful storage space inside this very impressively proportioned walnut bookcase cabinet by Gillows & Co, one of the greatest names in English furniture making, c.1880. Standing eight feet six  inches tall with open bookshelves at the centre and a small two door cabinet above, flanked on both sides with tall cupboards fitted with shelves inside (depth 14″). The base has a two door centre cupboard with single door cupboards to each side. Happily it separates easily into six pieces plus cornice, middle board (which sits on the top of the base) and plinth. As one would expect from Gillows the cabinet making is of exceptional quality, in solid walnut including the sides tops and backs of each piece. Raised panels with crisply carved floral and leaf pattern decoration, extensive moulding across the front and sides, original brass handles and hinges. Stamped Gillows & Co. together with the serial number 9406 on the top of one of the doors in the base. Excellent colour and condition, cleaned and waxed in our workshops. Keys supplied.
