The legs of this table are carved with folds and other features of the Auricular style. Although this style was first developed in silver and goldsmith work, woodcarvers began applying it to cabinetry during the second quarter of the 17th century. The table also has naturalistic, more classicizing ornamentation, such as putti and garlands.
