A very good Regency Period Rosewood Bookcase/Chiffonier with two graduated shelves with a spindle gallery above two doors with pleated silk panels flanked by carved corbels, the whole raised on bun feet and having pea and bean turned mouldings.
This is very much a Gillows model and all the carved, turned details point towards these illustrious makers along with the selection of fine timbers and panelled back.
