Object Description

The classic Regency period boxwood inlaid mahogany pedestal Pembroke table of good colour, having drop leaf sides over a frieze drawer, to a dummy at the opposing end, each being inlaid and with the original brass knob handles, the top raised on a well turned column to four downswept supports with brass castors and reeded capped paw feet, survives from the first quarter of nineteenth century England.

Object History


Object Literature

The influences on Regency design and taste were legion; from Sheraton’s neoclassicism, Henry Holland’s Anglo-French taste, the Greek revival of Thomas Hope, and the Chinoiserie favoured by the Prince Regent, to an interest in the Gothic, Old English and rustic. The Regency attitude to interior decoration often involved treating each room as a unit with individual furnishings and wall decorations in harmony of theme or colour scheme.

A true staple of any good country house of the period.

Object Condition

The condition of the table is complete and stable with no areas of concern. All of the elements are original to include the handles, feet and castors. 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.
