The table stands on a giltwood triform base, which is carved with stylised acanthus leaves and strapwork, and set on three scrolled feet in the form of Grotesque masks. The table is supported by a central turned giltwood column and three giltwood legs. The column is finely carved with stylised foliage, strapwork and fluting, and the legs are shaped like satyrs. These legs support a circular table top, the outer edge of which is composed of giltwood which is carved with strapwork. The centre of the table top is crafted from scagliola. This is decorated with a coastal scene, depicting a young woman at a well and a mother and child, occupying a piece of land before the sea. This image is framed by a black border which is decorated with golden rinceau bands, composed of scrolling foliage.

In its design, this table takes after the work of the Della Valle brothers. The brothers were accomplished craftsmen who were active in the mid 19th Century in Livorno on the Ligurian coast in Italy. The Della Valle brothers specialised in the creation of high-quality scagliola furniture.
