The legs are off of an 1890’s Square Piano.
The shape is actually rectangular but for accurate description per manufacturer they call it square.
Table will seat 8 comfortably with two smaller chairs inserted on sides. Measures 50” by 90”.
We purchased a dining table and chairs at auction. Sold the table and kept the chairs, had reupholstered. Chair legs very close to style of table legs.
Top of table has very defined pattern but because of the satin finish it comes across very soft, thus taking the busy out of the table. Only way I got this table top picture was to stand on a ladder wait until the sun came through the skylight then snapped it.

The grand piano I grew up with had 3 legs. Did yours have 4?

I would have been concerned that my design for the top would not match the grandeur of the legs, but I think you pulled it off.
