Can you shed some light on this table?

This is the top of the table. Notice that there are pieces missing.

The owner of this table really does not know much about it, and we were hoping you could provide a little more information on this work of art. Getting the answers to some questions like --How old is it?---- Where would it be from?---- What is it worth?--- would be quite interesting.

We think it is Indian but could be wrong.

Your comments would be appreciated at

Thank you for your time.
