A fantastic antique 19th Century clothes or towel hanging rail attributed to Gillows of Lancaster and with patent hinges. Beautiful turned wood with simple elegant design. Open or folded, this would look simply stunning in an interior setting. 

Stamped GL. Pieces with the same stamp are attributed to Gillows of Lancaster who were one of the most famous cabinet makers in England in the 19th Century.  With patent hinges, with makers mark that appears to be Hodges. We believe this to be early Victorian. This is a real country house piece. A wonderful rare period item, perfect to use and enjoy. Adding soul and character to a modern interior. 


Shows signs of wear and tear as it is old and has been used, but only adds to its character. Great decorative item which would look fantastic in any home or business interior.

Please look at photos closely as they form part of the item description.


Closed 36 cm width, 4 cm depth, 102 cm height
