A fine George III brass mounted two tier Dumb Waiter of superb colour and original patination, attributed to Gillows of Lancaster.

The whole is raised on a turned and reeded stem above a splayed reeded tripod base, terminating in original brass caps and castors. A rare opportunity to acquire a superb dumb waiter in fine, original condition. A similar dumb waiter appears in a Gillows sketchbook dated 1803, held by the Westminster Library London. Another closely related dumb waiter from the collection of the Dukes of Argyll at Inverary Castle, Argyll is illustrated in J C Rogers English Furniture, 1967, p. 239, fig. 197. One more is also to be found in C Claxton Stevens and S Whittington 18th Century English Furniture: The Norman Adams Collection, 1983, p.273.  c1803.
