GEORGE III INLAID MAHOGANY PEMBROKE TABLE
England c. 1790-1810
Item # 704NPY24L 


An absolutely gorgeous specimen that remains in exquisite original condition, this fine pembroke table retains an early cognac finish that is silky to the touch from years of waxing.  It retains all original brass castors, iron hinges, brass bail pull and lock and untouched structure - there is no key, but otherwise is in nearly the same condition as when it left the craftsman’s shop.  Solid planks of mahogany form the circular top, the drop leaves raised on dual wings to form an even surface for serving tea or playing games.  The single drawer is crafted with oak secondary woods using tight tiny dovetails to lock together the corner joints; the interior is divided into four compartments, the front three for organizing smalls and a larger compartment in the back.  An early label reads “Lady Melville, London” in a script that matches another label on the underside that is mostly torn away but still reads “From 18___ Portugal”.  Probably a deaccession from a museum at one point, the frame and drawer both retain scripting of LHH.85.11.226 (a/b respectively).  The stringer inlay is simply excellent, particularly in the ovolu design in the apex of the leg.  

A most fine acquisition for the collector of fine English furnishings from the 18th and 19th centuries, it is a strikingly angular piece that was designed with perfect proportions - the balancing of the curved top against the light frame and tapered legs is elegant and most refined.

Measurements:  34 3/4” L x 19 3/4” W x 27 3/4” H [closed]; 41” W [leaves opened]

Condition Report:
Old refinish with beautiful patina.  Oxidized scars, typical scuffs/abrasions, overall gorgeous surface condition.  Original hardware throughout.  Untouched structure.  Some stringer inlays replaced and minor losses, particularly the ebony stringer around the apron.
