20TH CENTURY ANTIQUE CHIPPENDALE MAHOGANY PEMBROKE TABLE WITH SERPENTINE TOP

Bay Colony Antiques is delighted to offer for sale this fantastic early 20th century Chippendale antique style mahogany Pembroke table. We purchased this from a lovely couple who we sold a period example to and they were gracious enough to allow us to purchase their long loved table now that they have the period twin. The family was originally from Swampscott Massachusetts and told us they purchased this & another table from Israel Sack. We whole heartedly believed this was a period table and refused to believe otherwise until we got our hands on it and checked out the construction. This table was made in the early 20th century to the exact proportions and standards of the finest 18th century cabinet shops and was probably made around Boston based on how good the table is and how early in the 20th century it was made. The Sack family was instrumental to building the antique industry into what it is today and their publications are still the gold standard. We have multiple copies of their literature and our father knew the Sacks and we will attach a photo from Albert Sack’s “Fine Points of Furniture” showing a near identical Pembroke table as a best example. Israel Sack was an outstanding buying agent and truly understood and cared for every nuance of fine American furniture. The table has a serpentine top with drop leaves and has a large single drawer with an etched brass pull. The table has a complex pierced stretcher and finely formed molded Marlboro legs. The table measures 20 1/2" wide x 29" long x 29" tall. When the leaves are locked up the table measures 38 1/2" wide x 29" long.
