Davenport Desks

Originating in the 1790s, Davenport desks were first made by the renowned Gillows of Lancaster and London cabinetmakers at the request of a Captain Davenport. They were produced in all stylistic varieties of the period, but Regency versions are some of the most sought-after by collectors. Similar versions are featured in "Victorian and Edwardian Furniture" by John Andrews, and in "The Antiques Directory of Furniture," edited b y Judith and Martin Miller.
