    Don't know if occasional table is the correct term for this.
    Trying to determine maker ,date manufactured, any info on origins .
    Inherited from my grandmother who passed away in 1978 @ 81 years.
    The last view is the bottom of the piece where legs attached.

      What I found interesting about this is picture #2. The legs appear to slide into a key way. High quality tables the leg slid into a dovetail key way. This appears to be similar and a bit uncommon if the legs are actually in a key way. Hard to tell from a picture.

      All indicators are that it is mid 20th century.

      fhrjr2 , Pictures posted not familiar with dovetail key way , I would call this dowel + nail. picture from inside shows the dowel glued into the bottom of the drawer housing . picture from bottom show the plate + nails where legs attached.
      Does this type work indicate age? Also it seem this was a limited run of tables note on bottom right of leg it say's 127/181.
      Any other info on this type of workmanship would be appreciated.

      127/181 written in lumber crayon would not indicate a limited edition. I sooner think they are locator numbers used in a warehouse or else they indicate an order progress. By that I mean this is number 127 out of a total of 181 needed to fill a customer order. The odd number would indicate an order of 180 plus one to use as a display (or to bribe the guy placing orders). Age is difficult without seeing it in person but I think Scott is on target. Although the pedestal/leg joinery leads me to pre WWII.
