I just picked up a table at a thrift store here in San Francisco that I need help identifying. It looks like a low, round coffee table, at least from a distance (more on that later). The wood appears to be mahogany veneer, with solid mahogany legs. The bottom is stencilled "881-230-3 / Table / Declaration / by Drexel / 11-58".
There are two things that are unusual about this table: one is that the top is not quite round, but is slightly "squished" on four sides. The other is that there is an inlaid pattern in the center of the tabletop of 8 veneer "dots" around a center dot.
I know that Edward Wormley designed at least one line for Drexel, but I don't know if this was also his. Also, can anyone tell me if the "11-58" stencilled on the bottom is usually a manufacture date with Drexel? Any info would be greatly appreciated.
