A wooden examination table; painted white; adjustable; the surface is made of greenish leather and is in three pieces; has flared base acting as a step stool; it appears that the table is meant to be adjustable at one end to allow it to dip to the floor on that end while the other remains stationary (but the table is too fragile to attempt); there are four screws sticking out of one side of the table that appear modern.
