The Georgian mahogany Pembroke table having a butterfly shaped moulded top raised over two single drawers at either end supported on Gillows design fluted tapering legs, with concealed ball casters, survives from the first quarter of nineteenth century England.

The condition of the table is complete and stable with no real areas of concern. The handles to the frieze drawers are later. There are a few knocks and nicks to the top but no significant losses. The castors move freely as do the supports for the drop leaves.

This table has clear influences from Sheraton’s neoclassicism and the legs are very much of the Gillows design.
