What is this?
Each of demi-lune form, the top inlaid with ribbon-tied floral garlands set into the satinwood, all centered by a fluted demi-lune, that when the tables are put together becomes a patera; the border all surrounded by a contrasting border of rosettes and attenuated anthemia; the skirt inlaid with swags of husks, anthemia, and urns; the tapered quadrangular legs inlaid with husks.
