A bit about Gillows.
Gillows of Lancaster, also known as Gillow & Co, was an English furniture making firm based in Lancaster, Lancashire, and in London. It was founded in Lancaster in about 1730 by Robert Gillow (1704 - 1772).
Gillows was owned by the family until 1814 when it was taken over by Redmayne, Whiteside, and Ferguson, they continued to use the Gillows name. Gillows funiture was a byword for quality, and other designers used Gillows to manufacture their furniture. Gillows furniture is referred to by Jane Austen, Thackeray and the first Lord Lytton, and in one of Gilbert and Sullivan's comic operas. In 1903 Gillows merged with Warings of Liverpool to become Waring & Gillows and though the furniture remained high quality it was not prestigious.
