Pembroke Table

Based on the images this drop leaf "Pembroke Table" is in what's referred to as the “Colonial Revival” style. Because of its resemblance to genuine 18th Century antique pieces, Colonial Revival style furniture often appears far older than what it really is, but by the simple passage of time the earlier examples made up to 1915 have become antiques in their own right by passing the 100 year mark.

Such pieces were designed after original examples made 1620-1780, but most were made during the first quarter of the 20th Century. The style remained popular until World War Two, with most North American furniture companies produced their own lines of furniture in this style.Values for furniture of this period often depends a great deal on condition as tended to use veneer on the “Show Faces”, such as table tops and drawer fronts, which was prone to chipping and delamination if exposed to extremes of heat and humidity. Most comparable examples to this one now sell at auction in the $200.00- $300.00 range.
