The fine choice of timbers employed, the reeded tapered legs and lobed top are all aspects which point to a cabinetmaker of some distinction. Gillows could well be a likely contender, for comparison with work which relates by the company, albeit slightly earlier in date than the present piece, see Lindsay Boynton, Gillow Furniture Designs, Royston, 1995, figs. 15, 21, 35.
