    About this item

    This is an outstanding quality large country house soft black leather button-back Otterman Footstool in the Manner of Gillows of Lancaster.

    Dating to circa 1900, the extremely strong and sturdy piece has a solid mahogany superstructure with a generous-sized deep button-back soft leather seating/foot area.

    The tall tapering and reeded legs are original to the Gillows pattern, and the piece stands firmly on 4 solid brass casters.

    It is a complete show-stopper and a magnificent statement piece.

    Indeed, we doubt very much that you could find one better!

    Gillows of Lancaster and London, also known as Gillow & Co, was an English furniture-making firm based in Lancaster, Lancashire, and London. It was founded in Lancaster in about 1730 by Robert Gillow (1704–1772)

    Gillows was owned by the family until 1814 when it was taken over by Redmayne, Whiteside, and Ferguson; they continued to use the Gillow name. Gillows furniture was a byword for quality, and other designers used Gillows to manufacture their furniture. Gillows furniture is referred to by Jane Austen, Thackeray and the first Lord Lytton, and in one of Gilbert and Sullivan’s comic operas. In 1903 Gillows merged with Warings of Liverpool to become Waring and Gillow and although the furniture remained of a high quality it was not as prestigious.
