Description

A Very Good Quality Late 18th Century
Georgian Mahogany Pembroke Table Having
Well Figured Two Flap Oval Top With Crossbanded
Decoration Over One Frieze Drawer Opposed By 
False Drawer To Reverse Raised On Elegant
Square Tapering Legs 
(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 Pembroke Table is an excellent late 19th century example
constructed from a very good cut of mahogany accentuated by
the attractive cross banded decoration. It is also raised on
exceptionally elegant square tapered legs and just has a real
feel of class in the way it stands. The perfect size for so many
different functions, with the versatility of the drop flaps it
really is a practical and elegant additional to any space
around almost any home. )
