This table is composed of solid beautifully figured mahogany throughout.  The top is of a solid, dense Cuban mahogany.  The feet are reeded and terminate in ball turnings at their end.  Interestingly, this table bears a family history, (see below) and was a museum deaccession, acknowledging that this is a fine historical document of small scale and in excellent condition.
