This oak draw table is made in the Southern Netherlands: the construction of the table top resembles the Northern Netherlands draw-leaf tables, but the frame of this table is not reinforced by braces. The braces are part of the girdle that is carved with small lambrequins. The flat, wooden pins of the top are placed outside instead of on the inside. The almost cylindrical ball feet are heavier and larger than the ones found in their Dutch counterparts.
On the base rails there are flat, slightly protruding planks and on the rules and spindle feet there is lobed carving. The carvings are not cut out of the base but glued on, which is often the case with this type of table. The belt and the houses above the legs are little decorated. The bobbin feet under the legs, decorated with lobate carving, are typical for Antwerp drawing tables. The table is dismountable: the houses of the belt and the footers have ledge screws.
When extended the table measures 326 cm. in length.
