This has a walnut pedestal three leg base which Is being repaired.
It stands about 4 feet from the ground. The top is above.
It folds out to a star which is about 36 inches point to point. The octagon
is about 17 inches across. Has a painting which looks like Columbus
coming to the New World. It can be used as a table. You can also
fold it up so it displays as a star. The base is signed and has the words
avant on it which i think is French for front. Its old but I know nothing about it except it was purchased at an estate sale. Any info would be great.
What do you call this kind of table...
