A magnificent and enormous pair of huge bronze Edwardian Baroque panels each in two parts made for Gillows of Lancaster, the famous furniture and furnishings company founded in 1730 who later to became Waring and Gillow. They would have been part of a grand display stand at one of the Great International Exhibitions that occurred from the mid 19th century. Gillows was one of a number of first class manufacturing companies to provide work of the highest calibre for these exhibitions. It is not clear exactly which event these panels, some parts which are missing, would have been made for but it is likely to have been either the London Exhibition of 1908 or the one in Ghent in 1913. The panels bear medallion copies of the medals that Gillows were awarded at various exhibitions from London,1851 to Paris,1900 and Brussels.

Extraordinarily they were only discovered in 2015 stored away in a dock-side warehouse in Liverpool the home of Warings. It is possible that they have remained there undisturbed and forgotten for all those years from the time they were dismantled from the exhibition and transported back to Liverpool.
English, 1903 - 1914
