The legs are gold tone lacquer with a curved diagonal flat portion at the top covering two sides of the glass top and allowing the corner to show. Each leg is divided in two vertical columns with polished surfaces and a textured vertical pattern inside. The diagonal portion at the top of the legs is double to allow the glass top to slide in. The upper section has on the inside a rubber surface to secure the glass in place. There are two large plastic screws per leg clamping the glass top from beneath. The result is a `clean` design which is also sturdy. The decorative glass top is of exceptional quality & casting. It is clear and of 14 mm. The upper side is deeply textured and sculptural with a fossil-like theme. The underside surface is of a gloss flat finish.
