The original had Birdseye maple panels at the top of the legs and a narrow, light banding around these panels as well as around the two sections of the front apron.
The marble top was a rarity on this type of table so perhaps the person that commissioned it to be built had a special purpose in mind for it.One can speculate on all types of uses for it. It's height is slightly more than normal, about the height of a serving table so perhaps it was used as that in a smaller dining room, or perhaps it was used as a washstand in a small bedroom.
One of the nice things about antiques and miniatures is that you can let your mind wander about matters such as this.
I made this table from a furniture kit from 'The House of Miniatures Collection'.
