A fine George III Chippendale period mahogany Pembroke table, of outstanding quality and superb original colour and patination.

English, c. 1770.

The the well-figured solid mahogany rectangular top with rounded corners, having two drop leaves, unusually, supported by solid mahogany lopers, mounted on a mahogany underframe; above the two short mahogany-lined frieze drawers at either side, with an ornate brass handle to the front, fitted drawer, and a swan-neck handle to the opposing drawer; the whole raised on four chamfered square-cut tapering legs, terminating in original brass and leather barrel castors.

The design derives from Thomas Chippendale's design for a 'Breakfast Table' in The Gentleman and Cabinet-Maker's Director, 1754, pl.XXXIII. The present table's superb quality of construction and the use of mahogany as a secondary timber, chamfered underside of the drawer rail, and the ornate handle, which appears on several other comparably high-quality pieces, attributable to the same workshop, are all distinctive features often associated with the work of Thomas Chippendale (d. 1779). A pair of similar Pembroke tables, also bearing the distinctive chamfering under their drawer rails, were supplied by Thomas Chippendale to Ninan Home for Paxton House, Berwickshire circa 1775 (C. Gilbert, The Life and Work of Thomas Chippendale, London, 1978, vol. I, p. 274, fig. 457).

Outstanding quality, fine quality solid mahogany throughout, excellent condition, minor restorations. Both handles are original and retain traces of their original gilding.
