I am attaching pictures, I thought I had before.

Answer
it is an oak lamp table or end table.  these were advertised both ways back around 1890-1915 when they were made and sold.

the legs usually fit in a slot under the top but some were attached to a mounting board which was then attached to the underside of the top.

the feet are not copper but have a copper wash on them to give that look.

in good condition structurally and visually these sell from 150-300
