GILLOW & CO., LONDON This is a plate from a large, lavishly illustrated volume published in London in 1863, Masterpieces of Industrial Art & Sculpture, at the International Exhibition, 1862. This International Exhibition was sponsored by the Royal Society of Arts, Manufactures and Trade, and featured over 28,000 exhibitors from 36 countries. The expo was a tremendous popular success, attracting over six million visitors during the run of the expo in 1862. The sheet measures 11.5 x 16.5 inches in size, and is blank on the reverse side. It has a small, light age spot in its upper right corner (far away from the image see photo), but is otherwise in beautiful condition, with its colors warm and bright. Above the image it is labelled in small print ENGLAND PLATE 236. The credit line below the image reads: London. Chromolithographed & Published by Day & Son, Lithographers to the Queen. J.B. Waring, direx. The print will be accompanied by a separate full sheet of text related to the lithograph. This text says, in part: . . . In the official Jury Report of this class it is remarked, in awarding a prize medal to the firm, that the furniture exhibited by Messrs. Gillow & Co. . . . are all distinguished for their form, and perfect in their workmanship, and take the foremost rank in the English exhibition. The cabinet we have selected was designed in a Graeco-Pompeian style, and enriched with very good marquetrie patterns, with porcelain plaques containing cameo painted subjects in the panels. The principal woods employed in its construction were amboyna, grey maple, and purple-wood, the cornice and frieze being supported by carved box and purple-wood columns. . . .
