Top is fastened to apron with single drawer; apron raised on terrific turned legs detailed by reels, compressed ball and ring turnings. All edges of inside and outside of stretchers and the apron rails are molded and are crisp with full detail as are the beautiful ball feet-each retaining full pad.
