Footnote: Gillows of Lancaster, the renowned furniture makers, were the masters of 18th and 19th-century furniture. The company was founded by Robert Gillow in 1730 and quickly gained a reputation for creating exquisite, handcrafted furniture that was both innovative and timeless.

Throughout its long history, Gillows produced furniture that was celebrated for its beauty, craftsmanship, and attention to detail. Their pieces were sought after by the aristocracy, wealthy merchants, and prestigious institutions all over the world. From stately dining tables to elegant armchairs, Gillows’ furniture graced the grandest homes and public buildings of its time.

Gillows’ success was due in part to its skilled craftsmen and its innovative use of materials and manufacturing processes. They were particularly renowned for their use of mahogany, which was in high demand during the 18th century. The company’s use of new technologies, such as steam-powered machinery, allowed them to produce furniture more efficiently, without compromising on quality.

Despite experiencing financial difficulties in 1814, Gillows of Lancaster continued to produce high-quality furniture, and in 1897, the company merged with Waring of Liverpool to become Gillow & Co. Ltd. The new company continued to create stunning, handcrafted furniture that was both elegant and functional.

Today, Gillows’ furniture is highly prized by collectors and antique enthusiasts worldwide. The pieces available here on the Wick Antiques website are a testament to the company’s legacy. Each piece has been carefully restored, bringing out the exquisite details and beauty of the original design.

At Wick Antiques, we are proud to offer a selection of Gillows’ finest pieces, showcasing the company’s skillful craftsmanship, innovative designs, and commitment to quality. From sumptuous sofas to refined desks and cabinets, our collection of Gillows furniture represents the pinnacle of English furniture-making.
