Antique Pembroke Tables are a style of a small table first seen in the 17th Century but became more commonly used in the Georgian period with small drop leaves on each side that can be opened and supported using small hinged brackets to create a larger table when needed. They are either rectangular or the slightly better models are oval in shape and can come with decorative inlays, including cross-banding or Shell centres. The variety of woods does vary on antique Pembroke tables from Mahogany, Rosewood and Satinwood and they will stand on very fine tapering legs with spade feet. The Pembroke table was named after the Countess of Pembroke who first ordered and commissioned this table in the late 17th century. This was reproduced by the famous furniture designers Chippendale and Hepplewhite along with Victorian and Edwardian cabinet makers. This is ideal table if you have limited space in your home because of their very practical proportions, ideal as a side table providing a home for a lamp but also very useful as an occasional table for afternoon tea. When extended they can make a small dining table for two to four people. Have a look below at our lovely, genuine examples available for sale below.
