A Good Quality 18th Century, Georgian, Hepplewhite Period, Mahogany Pembroke Table Having Extremely Well Figured Top With Two Hinged Flaps, Retaining Exceptional Untouched Colour And Patina Throughout, Over One Frieze Drawer Opposed By False Drawer To Reverse, Raised On Elegant Moulded Square Tapered Legs With Original Roller Castors.

Pembroke tables became one of the most popular pieces of furniture around the middle of the 18th century, owing largely to their versatility and their plethora of different functions. 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. People such as Jane Austen even described them being used for dining at, or for writing at, whilst there is even reference to them being used in other places around the house such as for ladies to sit and and carry out their embroidery.

One thing that is certain is that the fact they are incredibly versatile even in todays world and can be used for many, many different purposes. The option of being able to use the two flaps to create significant variations in the size of the table top surface is certainly a popular and useful feature.

This is a particularly nice example of a Hepplewhite Pembroke Table, being constructed from an incredibly rich, dense, well figured mahogany. It has also managed to retain a fabulous lustre and patina throughout the many years of its life and really is quite beautiful indeed.

The table is a good size, big enough to be useful and functional, but not so big it needs a very big space, or would dominate a room.

The table is in excellent condition overall, with just the usual blended in marks, scuffs and scrapes which you would expect on an item which has been in use for well over 200 years. It also comes with working lock and key.

As with all items we offer for sale the table has been naturally waxed in the traditional manner by our highly skilled restorers, ensuring that it is ready to be placed straight into the home.
