The oval tilt-top and urn-and-column shaft evoke American neoclassical stands, but small details in this table introduce some uncertainties.  The cabriole leg profile exhibits angularity that is contrary to the curves found in typical leg shapes of the period.  The turning profile of the shaft is also at odds.  The urn is weakly shaped, almost not recognizable.  The domed cap at the top of the column is an awkward resolution, typically achieved by a narrow ring an inch or so below moldings.
