Just got a lot of magic from an old magician who past away. I need help with this table. Its rectangle and when I squeeze the two rods on the bottom the four legs come down. The I open it up. It even has a round little drop bag that connects to back opening. It opens kinda like a night club table but its not square like that. Please help.
Thank you

That sounds like a Merv Taylor table, or Owen model of the Merv Taylor table. The drop bags were added most likely from Viking Magic, as they were not available when those were being built in the 1960's.

What kind of covering was glued on the whole box case? Post a picture if possible.

Okay, sounds like the Owen Magic Merv Taylor table. It is covered in what is called a leatherette covering. I had one years ago. It sold for over $200 back in the day. Hate to see what they would want for it today.

The other one made by Bev Taylor covered his in gray vinyl and had square drop down lags.
