Catalogue Note

The attribution to Gillows of this impressive dining table is firmly backed up by a design for an octagon end table made by the firm for William Boardman of Manchester in 1786 (illustrated Susan E. Stuart, Gillows of Lancaster and London 1730-1840, Woodbridge, Volume I, p. 235, pl. 228). Richard Gillow, son of founder Robert Gillow, took great pride in the numerous ways a dining room table could be assembled, stating ‘they are capable of being converted into six different sizes without any alteration – for in the first place it may be a regular octagon’ (op. cit., p. 235).
