An impressive English Regency mahogany Wardrobe by Gillows, circa 1815, of the same design as those supplied by Gillows to Hackwood Park
(see Christies 'Hackwood Park' Sale 1998)
Initialled by Craftsmen ‘HH and RW’ and inscribed ‘Yellow Bedroom’. This wardrobe follows the classic Gillows pattern of which three versions were offered by Christies at the Hackwood Park Sale (£37,000 each). This wardrobe is not from Hackwood as there is no Yellow Bedroom there but must form part of a similar commission for another country house.
