The frame features a satinwood-crossbanded and ebony-strung, drop-leaf top with reeded edges centered by a reversible, checkerboard panel. The central panel slides out to reveal a removable, bone and ebony-inlaid backgammon board over a single frieze drawer. The table rises on a pair of string-inlaid uprights ending in downswept legs and brass caps and casters.
