Mahogany Pembroke table, c. 1765, with later modifications, c. 1890s. With square moulded legs, this Pembroke almost certainly started out with a square-edged rectangular top. Fast forward over a century and the more humble top was altered to form an ovoid shape, given a rounded edge and inlaid with satinwood cross-banding. Likewise, the drawer front and opposite panel. The centre shell motif completed the neoclassical makeover. The top has a very pleasing faded patina and marks consistent with use, and has been freshened up. Original iron lock and 3 out of 4 squat castors. Early repl. handle.
