Very nice! You can google 'Victorian side table' and find similar examples, including this one from Rubylane.

Edited to add lori's pic.

I found a few by googling 'Victorian card table' but those mostly had demilune or rectangular tops. Also try 'Victorian tea table.'

The table shown by mama_goose has a very nice finish on top and the remainder of the table appears little used. Is this the original finish or has it been re-done?

A table like this one when used for dining will show wear on top of the feet where folks absentmindely shuffle their feet on the legs, especially if youth have dined therein. The feet of mama_goose's table shows no such scuffing.

Just to clarify--

The pic that I posted is Lori's table, from the URL she provided. From the measurements that she provided (oval 38x25, 28"H), I'm thinking it was a side table, rather than a dining table.

lori_40 doesn't have her GW email enabled, so she may not be aware that anyone has replied.
