Gillows of Lancaster is renowned in the world of fine furniture, with antique cabinets by this Lancashire firm held in the same esteem as those of Sheraton and Chippendale. Gillows was producing fine furniture for over 200 years – the majority of it for the aristocracy and upper classes and opening in 1740 London branch quickly establishing himself as a cabinetmaker of international importance.
