Antique (?) table with cabriolet legs and stretcher with centre spindle

Got this table 30 years ago from an elderly lady who had used it as a kitchen table. No markings on it as to who made it. It looks like it was assembled by hand, but not sure about anything else. Has anyone seen anything similar? I would appreciate any comments!

This table is in the "Eastlake" style and made about 1885, the style getting its name from Charles Eastlake, who wrote a book entitled "Hints on Household Taste" in 1868. In this influential book he rejected the ornate decorations favored on earlier Victorian furniture and espoused simpler more incised rectangular lines sparingly accented with machined forms and varying wood types for decoration. The American version of this style were more ornate than Eastlake's original designs, but his name has been forever linked to this furniture ever since. Values vary considerably depending on quality ofconstruction, wood type and how close they follow original Victorian designs. In the current market demand for Eastlake furniture is very modest, with comparable tables now going at auction for under $150.00
