Victorian tables roughly fell into three classes: "Plain" ,"Inlaid", and "Carved". The "plain" tables were the least expensive and produced in the greatest numbers. The utilitarian versions we solid poplar and the upgraded versions usually veneered in Quarter-sawn Oak. Next in number came the "Inlaid"- probably due to popularity rather than price. Many more inlaid tables were produced than were carved ones – both in number of individual tables and in number of models. Furthermore, of the relatively few models of carved tables made, once you get past the most popular (e.g. "Union League" and its variations), production numbers drop quickly and these tables are few and far between.
It is also a fact that most of the carved tables were Quarter-sawn Oak and so a carved table in another wood, like Mahogany or Walnut, is even
This table is also special in that it has a good deal of real hand carving (as in the Acanthus leaf legs). Many tables are categorized as "carved" because of layers of moldings, or "applied carvings", or because of routing in the solid wood sheath of the cabinet.
One final factor is that Brunswick-Balke-Collender was national and dwarfed all other companies' production. While J. E. Came was a significant regional maker, it was still small in relative terms, so It is unlikely to find another table like this.
