This is a drop-leaf table. The table doesn't take up much space when not in use.

Neat! You don't see these often. They are antique/vintage game tables. Drop tables fold down, game tables fold up.

The shape of the table would be considered carved. If there is an official name for it, it is gone from my brain.

This is a really neat piece! I am guessing by the legs it is from the 1930s-1950s, but I would need to really get underneath and take a look at the underside to get a better feel for what you have.

What do the hinges look like? The screws? Are the feet brass or some other metal?

It is a really neat piece. Are you asking to sell or just for your info?

You have an Imperial game table but the pictures do not show sufficient 'movements' of the table so there is no way to tell if the table turns/spins so that it is stable when you open the leaf.
Many people call this Duncan Phyfe style.
Does your table have a drawer that is 'open' when the top is turned?
I believe the claw feet may be metal and not wood?

You do not say that you are looking for current value but I believe this table may sell in the low hundreds.
There are a lot of vintage/antique game tables listed for sale but the Imperial tables do not appear to be in the high end field. I did find several similar styles listed for sale (only one sold listing) but if you review and read the descriptions you may get some ideas as to what is a good description and be sure to check the pictures because that is what sells furniture.
