A very fine quality English desk by Gillows of Lancaster the desk was made in the late 1800s and represents one of the finest quality pieces you will find. The desk features a rollout writing surface with drawers that are inlaid on the top with the alphabet, the drawers have secret compartments, the drawers retain the original green pulls which are made of fabric. The desk has three adjustable slopes on it which can be seen in the photographs this desk is rare in 40 years I have been fortunate enough to find three or four of them. This one is undoubtedly the finest one both in design and condition that I have seen personally. The back side of the secret drawers are signed in pencil with the name Gillows.
