Here is a fine quality English Georgian solid mahogany drop leaf Pembroke table, circa 1790, in excellent original condition. The table is constructed of top quality solid Cuban mahogany timber and boasts a stunning grain configuration to the leaves.

This is an ideal small dining table, which can accommodate six people with the leaves raised, or is a decorative as a side / occasional table for use around the home.

It was known as one of the most useful but fashionable shapes for an antique table of its age.
The item has a rich mahogany brown colour. As it boasts the original polish, it has a fantastic colour and patination; this can only be achieved through age and years of care and cleaning it has received.
