Pembroke Table - (Furniture)

Pembroke Table - (Furniture) A small table with drop-leaf sides supported by brackets, and usually, a shallow drawer. The name may derive from the Countess of Pembroke; it seems to have been first applied in the 1760's. This piece of furniture, whether as a breakfast table or a lady's work table, was very popular in the late eighteenth century. Both Hepplewhite and Sheraton designed examples.
