dished medial tabletop which is molded on the underside creating a crisp edge. The threaded standard is positioned on the turned

(It appears that the top, standard and base have always been together, however, the top is screwed to cleat from underside; pegs have been installed through the side-of-cleats likely securing/tightening the top. We mention this because we tried to examine the underside of top but were unable. There is scattered evidence of minor beetle infestation of the period and of course, inactive.
