(Pembroke tables became one of the most popular pieces of
furniture around the mid 18th century due to their versatility and
plethora of different uses. In fact George Hepplewhite himself
actually described Pembroke tables as the most useful of tables
and many references can be found to them in the literature of the
time with people such as Jane Austen even describing them being
used for dining at, or having papers kept in them to use them as a
writing table and there is even reference to them in other places as
being used for ladies to do their embroidery at.
It is certain that they are incredibly versatile even in todays world
and can be used for many, many different purposes. The ability to
use the two flaps to create significant variation in the size of the
table top surface is certainly a popular feature. This particular table
is a good example because it is constructed from good quality
mahogany with a well figured, clean, surface to the top and
crossbanded decoration. It is also raised on an extremely elegant
turned central column and retains it's original brass castors)
