Restored Gothic Revival Desk Side Bookcases Drawer Writing Slope Pugin Gillows
Royal House Antiques is delighted to offer for sale this. Exceptionally rare Gothic Revival circa 1840 solid oak partner desk with top drawer writing slope and side bookcases made by either Gillows of Lancaster or Pugin. Where to begin, this desk has been on a journey, when I first received the piece it looked like it had been French polished and waxed around 20 times, it had a very clumpy sticky finish, my restorers have stripped back all that horrible guck, they have then lightly stained and French polished it the correct way which has kept all the period patina and simply made it golden, The leather top and writing slope top has been replaced with fully aniline natural cattle hide leather that was plain, Ive then had my leather polishers dye it this gorgeous whisky brown colour. Lastly there was various small timber repairs which have been done with antique timber.

The finished article is a very fine period Gothic revival desk. I have only ever seen desks of this quality made by Gillows of Lancaster and London, the side or back bookcase was something they were well known for as was the writing slope inside the top drawer. They may have had a collaboration with Pugin as many of his designs our found in Gillows works. Please note all measurements are taken at the widest point, if you would like any additional or specific measurements please ask.
