A George III Satinwood Pembroke Table, England, c.1800
This is a small scale Pembroke table in superb condition, which over the years has mellowed to an amber satinwood color. See the image of the top below. Note the beautiful choice of woods with inlaid mahogany cross-banding, and floral/musical motifs. This Pembroke table came to us from a collection assembled by The Pebble Beach Plantation. Also from that collection are a finely painted caned armchair (sw01439), and a monumentally sized dressing mirror (sw01448).
Also view the various close-ups. It is a wonderful small scale table of superb craftsmanship using highly sought after satinwood. Lastly, see The Best of Painted Furniture, Florence de Dampierre, for many painted pieces of this style, including the card table shown below.
Height: 29 in. Width: 17 in. (closed) - 34 in. (open) Depth: 27 in.
