Physical description

Table with circular top and four legs. Each leg formed by two sections of bentwood waisted near the top and splaying out to form a loop at the foot - the two sections dowelled into a ribbed oval foot which stands on a shallow plinth. The legs are screwed into each other, with plugs over the screw heads, near where the two sections of each leg meet just below the waist. Just above the waist the legs are screwed into a turned cylinder with a terminal like a spinning top which is suspended betweeen the eight leg sections. The tops of the legs are either dowelled in or screwed down from above through the central cross frame which in turn is screwed up into the circular table top. The hexagonal table top is constructed in two halves framed by six segments.
