A GEORGE III MAHOGANY PEMBROKE TABLE
c. 1770 England
Offered by Mackinnon - Fine Furniture
This ‘Pembroke’ table with serpentine butterfly top is derived from Plate XIII in Ince & Mayhew’s Universal System of Household Furniture (1762). George Hepplewhite’s The Cabinet-Maker and Upholsterer’s Guide (1788) illustrated this type of mahogany table the comment that ‘Pembroke tables are the most useful of this species of furniture; they may be of various shapes’ and Sheraton adds that the name comes ‘from the name of the lady who first gave order of one of them’.
The design is thought to have evolved from the slightly earlier mid 18th century ‘breakfast’ table that furnished bedroom apartments, and its serpentine and elegantly tapering legs are in the Louis XV ‘French’ taste.
The brass axe-shaped handles are typically associated with the workshops of Thomas Chippendale.
