A rosewood, satinwood and mulberry-inlaid Pembroke table, English, circa 1790, the top banded in satinwood and to the centre inlaid with a circle of mulberry wood, and with a pair of drop-leaves, above a single frieze drawer, raised on four tapering square-section legs united by a concave-sided shelf stretcher, also inlaid with mulberry wood, the legs terminating in collars and fitted with castors. All-over decorated with satinwood banding.
By descent until, following the death of Edward William Spencer Cavendish, 10th Duke of Devonshire (1895 - 1950), Hardwick Hall and its contents were accepted by HM Treasury in part payment of death duties and transferred to the National Trust, in 1959.
