This mahogany Pembroke drop leaf table is beautifully detailed, from the spiral barley twist legs to the gently curved cookie cutter corners on the side leaves, and a beautiful rich grained mahogany veneer wood.
Table is circa 1920s to 1940s, with two labels inside the drawer. One for Imperial, Grand Rapids, Michigan and a Genuine Mahogany label from the Mahogany Association Inc.
Table is 27 inches high. Top measures 27 inches by 19 1/2 inches, and 27 inches by 37 1/4 inches with the 10 inch drop sides elevated.
Top was refinished at some point and there are small remnants of two light cigarette burns at the front. They are very minor and not glaring at all, as they blend with the dark grain of the wood. Base of table retains its original finish. There are small scattered blemishes to the finish, mainly at the feet, but nothing major or of concern. The center drawer has a period replacement pull.
The leaf supports are in excellent condition, work perfectly, and support the drop sides with no play or movement when open.
It's a very sturdy and beautiful side table, with multi purposes. The Pembroke table was described by Chippendale as the most useful species of furniture. This style of occasional table was originally used as a breakfast, tea, writing, card, serving or game table.
