Probably American, but I can't find any like them and thought combined with the tile top that these might be Italian. Anyone seen any like this or have any clues?

Are these legs American or Italian?

Bumping to see if anyone has ever seen legs like this with the big brass tips on the end. Quite different from the typical american brass-tipped legs of that era. I've seen them one other time on another piece but also unknown maker. Guesses welcome.

I've never seen them before but they do look more Italian than American to me---the rest of the table, not so much. It's a bit clunky and i don't see much artfulness in the mosaic inlay. Not that Italian automatically means sleek and artful.

Here's a zoomed in photo of the leg in case it helps jog someone's memory. The leg itself is a bit unusual in that the top half looks cylindrical but then it starts to taper. At least that's how it appears in the photo.

Thanks for looking Spanky. I'll go with most likely Italian walnut.

The leg tips seem sort of a snazzy non sequitur for the mass-market mod style.

And speak of the devil, here's some real American legs..
