Catalogue Note

A design for a related commode by Gillows is illustrated in Lindsay Boynton, Gillow Furniture Designs 1760-1800, 1995, pl 117, see illustration. The present commode is of a quality normally associated with the oeuvre of this firm. The well figured veneers and exceptional quality of construction are typical. The particular form of the bracket feet is also of a type particularly associated with the firm. For comparison see Susan Stuart, Gillows of Lancaster and London 1730-1840, 2008, pl. 610 and 611.
