A Very Fine Quality 18th Century Georgian Sheraton Period Satinwood Pembroke Table Having Superbly Figured Two Flap Top, With Attractive Purpleheart Wood Crossbanded Decoration, Over One Frieze Drawer Opposed By Dummy Drawer To Reverse, Retaining Original Brass Handles, Raised On Elegant Square Tapering Legs, Terminating On Original Brass 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 particular Georgian Satinwood Pembroke Table is a particularly nice example of its type/ The construction is of excellent quality, evidenced for example by the mahogany drawer linings which it is relatively rare to come across owing to the expense of using mahogany as a secondary timber. The satinwood is highly figured and has retained an excellent, striking colour which contrasts nicely against the padouk cross banding.

The brass handles and brass castors are original and 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.
