This table could have been around at the time of the signing of the Declaration of Independence. This form of Pembroke table is generally attributed to Philadelphia: Mahogany as the primary wood, short drop leaves, pierced spandrels, Marlborough legs and "x" stretchers. This table has an interesting turned platen at the center of the "X" stretchers. The secondary woods are pine in the table and chestnut in the drawer.
The table is in remarkably good condition for its age. There is a small loss to one of the spandrels, repairs to the rule joints at the hinge points and repairs to the chestnut till in the drawer. The bail pull is not original but likely of the period. The pull covers the original mortise lock.
The table measures 271/2" tall x 18 1/2" wide x 27 3/4: deep (34" x 27 3/4" with the leaves up).
The single board top and leaves have great figure in the mahogany as does the drawer front. This is just a beautiful piece that will fit with most any decor.
