Baltimore Late Federal Mahogany Pembroke, c.1820


a late Federal mahogany Pembroke or breakfast table; these Baltimore versions of heavily reeded legs, inspired by the English Regency style, emulated the fasces lictoriae of ancient Rome; the knee allowances in the aprons, in addition to being practical, result in a subtle but effective lightening of the proportions; secondary woods are tulip poplar and white oak; dimensions: 28 1/2″ tall x 36″ long x 24 3/4″ wide (leaves down)
