The table has a  rectangular top with re-entrant corners and a leaf and vine carved edge above a pierced Gothic base with tracery panels between foliate and spiral reeded uprights, the ends with pieced crocketted spires above a small architectural detail supporting a dog or talbot and flames, on castors.
