This is a mid-1900’s Pembroke table. It has a leather top. My shop cat had to get in the picture. It was really rough when I got it from my neighbor. Shellaced top with multiple water stains and dings. I used lots of TLC and denatured alcohol to remove all the old shellac, clean everything and re-shellac then wax the top. The base wood is mahogany with lighter veneer strips. The wood all got a double drink of boiled linseed oil then paste wax. The drawer sides and bottom are oak, dovetailed all around.
The white spots in the 5th and 6th pictures aren’t in the leather and I don’t know why they showed up on the pic.
The only mark on the table is a branded 7602 on the underside of the drawer. Does anyone know what company may have produced this piece?
Before anyone asks, no, I don’t do this for a living. But I might do it again if the price was right.
