The use of beautifully figured satinwood and inlaid mahogany together with ebonized mahogany molded edges as seen on this Pembroke table are all features of the work of the London cabinet makers, John Mayhew and William Ince, whose partnership is described in The Dictionary of English Furniture Makers 1660-1840 as 'one of the most significant, probably the longest lived but, as far as identified furniture is concerned, the least well documented of any of the major London cabinetmakers of the 18th century'.
The present table is related to a group of Pembroke tables in the manner of Mayhew in Ince, one sold, Christie's, London, June 19, 1980, lot 115, another sold Sotheby's, New York, The Jerome C. Neuhoff Collection, January 25, 1986, lot 222 and another sold, Christie's, London, The Manolo March Collection From Son Galcerán, Mallorca, October 29, 2009, lot 149.
