A particularly fine Chippendale Period Mahogany, crossbanded and inlaid butterfly shaped serpentine Pembroke Table with a drawer at each end flanked by inlaid rosewood ovals and raised on square section tapered, fluted and stop fluted legs terminating in block feet with brass cups and leather barrel castors.

Circa 1775

Price: £3,750-00p.

Height: 30”, 75 cms / Width (open): 40”, 100 cms, Width (closed): 20.8”, 52 cms / Depth: 30.4”, 76 cms.

Note: The form, decoration and details like the legs are typical of the later Chippendale Period, particularly with the fluting and stop fluting. The Rosewood crossbanding and oval Inlays are hints towards the neoclassical work of the Adams brothers.

The table, designed in the French style, shows marked stylistic similarity to the Pembroke table commissioned by Ninian Home for Paxton House, Berwickshire, almost certainly supplied by Thomas Chippendale. The latter was engaged by Home from 1774, and the relationship continued after the death of Thomas Chippendale Snr in 1779. The related table was illustrated in Alastair Rowan, `Paxton House, Berwickshire II’, Country Life, August 24 1967, pl.9, and was sold anonymously at Sotheby’s, London, 10 November 2015, lot 122 (£68,750 including premium). Another similar table was formerly in the collection of Frederick Poke Esq., one of a distinguished group of English collectors advised by the furniture historian R.W.Symonds, and which was subsequently sold anonymously Christie’s, London, 14 May 2003, lot 39 (£128,450 including premium).
