Here we have a beautiful drop leaf Pembroke table which includes a maker’s mark in the drawer. This piece was made by Hickory Chair as part of the “Mount Vernon” collection. Interestingly, that collection is based on pieces and styles from George Washington’s estate. While this table was made in the US originally, we found it in England. So, it has crossed the Atlantic at least twice in its life already!
Mahogany and Satinwood
The wood used is a fine mahogany. Mahogany exhibits a tight grain and is a brown color. Accenting the edges of the top, the legs, and apron are satinwood inlays. Finally, a single brass plate back handle adorns the drawer and provides a little contrast to the woods. The inlays are expertly done and the mahogany was very well finished.
Drop Leaf Pembroke Table Features
Perhaps the most important feature are the drop leaves. They are supported by swing out wooden arms below them. Closed, the table measures 22″ x 30″, and while open it measures 41.5″ x 30″. Additionally, there is a single drawer which opens and closes very easily. That drawer has been properly constructed with dovetailed joints. At the bottom of each leg is a small brass cap and caster. These not only provide a great look, but allow a little mobility for the item as well.
We feel this drop leaf Pembroke table was made around the year 1980. Its condition remains good today. The top has sustained numerous light marks and surface scratches. They are difficult to see unless a good bit of light is shining on the top. As you will see, in one of the pictures we took we put extra light on the top to show some of these marks. There are also some minor marks on the drawer front. Otherwise, this is a very sturdy table which functions and looks great. You can be sure this drop leaf Pembroke table with last your family for many years. Knowing the maker and having the tag inside the drawer is an added bonus too!
