This table is composed of three solid unjoined boards; the top, and two drop leaves. The mahogany is a deep red-brown, with deep figure throughout. The legs are a very delicate cabriole form ending in carved trifid (stocking) feet. What's especially unusual about this table is the six legs, which make this a very stable table in that all four legs always remain in place, and instead of the fourth being the one to swing, each side has an additional leg to swing out and support the leaf.  Six-legged tables are quite rare and this table is in superb condition throughout.
