Gillow Antique Linen Press
Antique mahogany linen press made by Gillow of Lancaster and London. This linen press is made of a very fine cut of fiddle back mahogany on the drawer fronts and with flame mahogany on the door fronts. It has solid mahogany drawer linings, wonderfully precise dove tails and an intricate construction system involving tenons and dovetails for the main construction. There is crossbanding, cock beading and other decorative devices typical of the period. This linen press has it all, the handles are original, the locks are all stamped Gillow, there is a twist handle to keep the doors closed and there is a nice long top bolt on the left hand door. There is a Gillow label on the inside of the drawer showing a very interesting version of the Royal Warrant to Edward VII. Gillow were one of the foremost English furniture makers for over two hundred years.

Flame mahogany wardrobe
Antique wardrobe that looks like an antique linen press. This wardrobe has false drawers to make it look like a linen press, presumably because it had a pair that was a linen press, but we may never solve this mystery for sure. The timber is flame mahogany which has attained the most fantastic colour over the last two centuries. There is oval stringing on the doors and interesting decoration on the cornice.
