    Exceptional table in chiseled, molded and gilded bronze, adorned with a plaster top
    Oblong in shape, it rests on cylindrical section legs with raised rings. The legs appear joined together by curved crossbars that adapt to them using cubic pieces. The frame that houses the board is decorated with geometric motifs of classical inspiration.
