Classic Sheraton design........top and folding leavers made of the best flame Cuban mahogany.....inlaid and banded with satinwood and stringing. The top has a central diamond shaped inlay of satinwood enclosing and oval central inlay of yew wood or maple. The entire table is banded with satinwood and stringing.

The drawer section has the original brass handles......with the mahogany drawer edged in satinwood stringing. the leg pillars are likewise, stringed with satinwood and satinwood inlay.

The fake drawer side of the table has 2 original simple mahogany handles to signify that that side is a false drawer but it has beautiful cross-banded geometric stringing to make up for the lack of functionality.

The legs are simple and elegant narrowing towards the base......with stringing details on each leg tapering to the base......ending with the original brass castors.

Made in the Sheraton period ........ circa 1790.......reign of George the III.....probably English but found in Ireland.

SHERATON STYLE: Sheraton is a late 18th century neoclassical English furniture style, in vogue ca 1785 - 1820, that was coined by 19th century collectors and dealers to credit furniture designer Thomas Sheraton, born in Stockton-on-Tees, England in 1751 and whose books, "The Cabinet Dictionary" (1803) of engraved designs and the "Cabinet Maker's & Upholsterer's Drawing Book" (1791) of furniture patterns exemplify this style.

The Sheraton style was inspired by the Louis XVI style and features round tapered legs, fluting and most notably contrasting veneer inlays. Sheraton style furniture takes lightweight rectilinear forms, using satinwood, mahogany and tulipwood, sycamore and rosewood for inlaid decorations, though painted finishes and brass fittings are also to be found. Swags, husks, flutings, festoons, and rams' heads are amongst the common motifs applied to pieces of this style.

Without pedantic archaeology, it brought the Neoclassical taste of architects like Robert Adam within reach of the middle class. In many respects Sheraton style corresponds with the contemporary Directoire style of France. The Sheraton style was the most reproduced style in the United States during the Federal period.

This table is an EXTREMELY RARE original !!!

It is in its original condition..........it has over 200 years of wear and tear and has its flaws as a result, namely, some hairline cracks in the veneer.

We would NEVER attempt to restore it as in our opinion it would be 'sacrilege' to do so !!!

This piece is TOO GOOD to touch !!!

We would advise our clients to leave it alone and enjoy its natural history and beauty !!

THIS IS ONE OF THE BEST SHERATON PEMBROKE TABLES, I HAVE EVER SEEN !!
