A late 18th century satinwood Pembroke table of very good rich colour.
The top cross-banded in satinwood bordered with fine lozenges of ebony stringing.
The edges ebonised with narrow mahogany crossbandings.
Raised on moulded tapering legs indicative of a date ca. 1770. George III period.
The frieze with two working mahogany-lined short drawers retaining the original gilt brass Rococo mounts.
The two leaves are supported on the original recessed hinged ‘ear’ supports.
Overall in lovely original state. Some minor historic marks entirely consistent with its age.
These antique Pembroke tables were designed to be versatile: as small supper tables; occasional tables; tea tables; or lamp tables – sometimes also referred to as ‘drop leaf’ or ‘sofa’ tables.
The majority of these Georgian tables are raised on square tapering legs or, when of a later date, on turned legs. It is more unusual for a satinwood Pembroke table to be raised on moulded tapering legs.
Interestingly, Thomas Sheraton (1751-1806) mentions the Pembroke Table as follows: “a type of breakfast table from the name of the lady who first gave orders for one of them”, possibly referring to the Countess of Pembroke, of Wilton House, Salisbury (1737-1831).
A similar George III satinwood Pembroke table was sold from a private collection, Trevor Place, Knightsbridge, 26th April 2007, Christies, lot 428, est. £3000-5000.
29'' W – 35'' W fully extended.
Est. 1957
