Boasting wonderfully grained and patinated mahogany of the highest caliber, this early Regency-period Pembroke table is attributed to the Gillows firm of Lancaster, England. From the quality of the mahogany and perfect proportionality, to the masterful wood work, every detail of this table suggests Gillows' skilled workmanship. The handsome top displays the Pembroke signature hinged flaps, and rests upon a frieze featuring a working drawer on one side and a faux drawer on the other. A beautifully turned central column leads down to four elegantly swept reeded legs terminating in carved lion's paw feet. In terms of quality and condition, this is a fantastic specimen of Gillow's furniture.

Founded in 1703 by Robert Gillow, the Gillows firm operated successfully as a family-owned business well into the 19th century. Originally operating from Lancaster, England, Gillows was especially noted for their quality of workmanship and innovative designs. No other firm in the country had managed to gain as far reaching and prestigious a level of patronage than that of the Gillows firm, primarily due to the quality and classic nature of their furnishings. The Gillows firm was especially popular with the English nobility and with powerful religious figures throughout the country. Clients included the Earls of Wilton, the Duke of Norfolk, the Earl of Surrey and the Archbishop of York. Today, Gillows furnishings are held in the highest regard and the opportunity to acquire a piece attributed to this esteemed company is exceptional.

Did You Know?
According to English furniture designer Thomas Sheraton, Pembroke tables take their name from "that lady who first gave the orders for one of them, who probably gave the first idea of such a table to the workmen." The tables were first created sometime in the 1750s, and feature two hinged flaps, one on either side, and were often-utilized pieces of furniture in the well-appointed English home.
