A butterfly dining table is a smaller than average drop-leaf dining table in which there is a swinging support for the leaves. This table was originally created in the 17th and 18th centuries as an American tavern table. The butterfly table got its name because instead of the gate leg which is more common on a table, the butterfly table has extended fly-brackets that are wing-shaped which supports the flaps.
