Early 19th Century French Directoire Period Mahogany Drop Leaf Table is a fine example of French craftsmanship melded with practicality!  When closed, this piece makes a great sofa table, hall table, or just a table tucked against the wall for a bit of surface.  When the leaves are opened up, however, it becomes a wonderful square table with more than enough room for four, making it the ideal breakfast table for an efficient kitchen, or a dining table for a cozy townhome or apartment.  Hand-crafted from mahogany, the design is as straightforward as possible, with one leg on each corner swinging out to support the leaf when needed, and leaves are independent, so one can even open one only, to create a larger space for two, or a temporary work table.  Versatile, ingenious and beautiful in its own simplistic way!
