- 79 x 83 x 176 cm
When extended the table measures 326 cm. in length.
The construction of the table top resembles Northern Netherlands draw-leaf tables, but the frame of this table is not reinforced by braces, because they are part of the girdle that is carved with small lambrequins. The flat, wooden pins of the top are placed outside the girdle instead of on the inside. The almost cylindrical ball feet are heavier and larger than the ones found in their Dutch counterparts. Other differences are the flat, slightly protruding rails that are placed on top of the lines and the lobed carving on the lines and bobbins.
