A rare form in the highest style, the shelved upper section of rectangular outline, with scroll terminals, above a cupboard enclosed by a pair of paneled doors, ending in splayed bracket feet; shelf uprights are tenoned into the bottom section.

Note: Bookcases, or etageres, of this form were usually made in pairs on special order only. No comparables could be found to this particular form. There is a strong possibility that it is from the Gillows manufactory in Lancaster, due to its originality and quality. It is not marked. However, not all Gillows furniture bears marks.
