Rare 18C George III Yew Inlaid Oval Pembroke Table

An extremely fine and rare 18th Century George III yew wood inlaid oval Pembroke table. English (almost certainly London made) circa 1780. Of oval form, the yew-wood veneered drop leaf top centered by a banded fanning oval within radiating ‘spiders-web’ boxwood stringing and tulipwood banded boarder, over a bowed oak lined banded drawer with later brass pulls on square boxwood strung tapering legs with collared feet, brass caps and castors. Castors old but most probably later, table of fine colour having an historic repair to the joint of one leaf to no detriment. The opposite side mirroring the front with a false drawer.

Having some of the finest yew-wood veneers this table would most definitely have been London produced. During the late 18th Century yew-wood was a scarcely used timber due to rarity and cost, especially on a large scale, indicating it is likely this table has been made by one of the top makers of the period. Yew wood was more often seen in smaller objects of the period such as tea caddies and knife boxes.

Now into the second generation, Loveday antiques is run by Alexander Loveday.

From the early days until 2012 Loveday Antiques had three major showrooms running, located at Chelsea, Ascot and Islington, but sensing the major shift towards the online side of the business in January 2013 Alexander decided to close both Chelsea and Ascot and concentrated more on working via the internet and website as traders, interior designers and the public's buying habits changed.

The internet now allows us to trade globally 24/7, whilst keeping our overheads down and passing on these savings to our clients.

The start of 2014 has also led to more change, relocating the original showroom in London from The Furniture Vault in Camden Passage, from where we have traded for over 40 years, to our new showroom conveniently located in Hertfordshire within the A1 and A10 areas, just off the M25.

The new showroom is just North of London and only a 20 minute train journey from Kings Cross, London to Stevenage, with just a short 10 minute drive from there.  We are can easily arrange to pick clients up from the station as long as you let us know when you are coming.  If you are driving, it is 10 minutes from both the A10 and A1m.
