The thumb-molded edge of the drawer front has lost a section along the bottom left and the tips of all the remaining three corners.
Bequest of Dr. and Mrs. J. Newberry Reynolds to The David Wilson Mansion, Inc., in 1942.
A wood peg centered above each side of the table frame holds the rectangular top in place. The four splayed legs have molded outer faces with a serpentine profile and beaded edges. The legs are not tapered, and the inner faces are chamfered. The drawer sides are angled to conform to the splay of the legs. The frame is beaded along the bottom edge.
This one-drawer table was probably painted originally, but all evidence of paint has been removed. The table now has a thin clear finish, likely applied before the death of the donors in 1942.
