A very fine late 18th century Adam period marquetry inlaid harewood Pembroke table by George Simson having a kingwood and tulipwood crossbanded top centred with a boxwood oval medallion with a berried laurel border, the frieze inlaid with palm fronds and swagged drapery; on square tapering legs headed by acanthus foliage with husked drops terminating in brass and leather castors.

Pembroke tables became popular from the latter part of the 18th century and it is believed that Henry Herbet the 9th Earl of Pembroke , the architect earl concieved the idea of this type of table.

Note: An almost identical table labelled George Simson is illustrated in ‘The Pictorial Dictionary of English Marked London Furniture’.
