Antique George II Burr Yew Pembroke Table In The Manner Of Thomas Chippendale
Extremely fine and rare George II burr Yew Pembroke table, in the manner of Thomas Chippendale.
One of the rarest and finest of 18th Century Pembroke tables ever made. The colour, figuration and patina on this glorious piece are truly superb, the handles, lock, mahogany lined drawer and leather and brass casters are a beauty to behold. It is a most exceptional table. The amazing quality timber and construction of this outstanding piece would have undoubtedly been by an important cabinet maker of the period, possibly the master Thomas Chippendale himself.
Yew trees have a very slow growth rate and it is rare to find 18th century pieces completely veneered from the burr of this close grained, timber, prized for its rich colour, glorious figuration and the lustrous patina it develops.
It is in excellent condition for its age. A museum quality piece.
