Gillows Antique Billiard table.. further research

August 2015

Today we visited the Judges Lodging Town House in Lancaster to continue researching an early Gillow's Antique Billiard table which is currently for sale on our web site.

We were of the opinion that the table was circa 1810,but after consulting with staff and comparing the detail of their own Gillow's billiard table we believe our table may actually date from 1790.

The building  houses a magnificent display of Gillow's furniture ranging from fine Regency pieces to Arts and Crafts commissioned furniture designed by Bruce Talbert but made by Gillows.

 

Thanks to the staff for their hospitality especially Cameron!
