ID request - knoll, burke, or other dining table

hi all. i got this tulip dining table at a thrift store recently for $50. there are no tags or other indication of manufacturer. the top features a faux wood grain and is made of plywood. it is in good condition. the base is cast aluminum and painted an off-white/cream color. the table width is 51 1/8", it is 28 3/4" tall, and the base is 30" wide. the only markings are somewhat cryptic: "143#21" and "ATD" are stamped in black ink on the base underneath. as one of the photos indicates, the top of the base is square shaped where it attaches to the table top. any info is appreciated. thanks!

A very nice Knock-Off of an Eero Saarinen design

Nice, but not Knoll. Your handsome table is a Knock-Off of Eero Saarinen's 1956 design, called the Tulip Table. Saarinen, one of the world's great architects and furniture designers, said of the Tulip Series, "The objective of these furniture designs was to clear the 'slum of legs' from home interiors." The Tulip series of chairs and a variety of tables is an iconic modernist design group.

Here are a few pix of Saarinen's original design, which you can contrast with your table:

Walnut top
Image

Metal ID under front lip of chair - don't know if this is a Knoll ID or original owner ID
Image

Manufacturing date sticker on underside of table Mar 18, 1970
Image

Knoll International sticker on underside of table
Image

Pedestal shape is narrowest near the bottom and widens continuously to the top in both table and chairs - no straight cylinder anywhere on the pedestal. Top "unscrews from pedestal.
Image

Here, a set of six chairs and a table has a total of seven legs. The chairs swivel, like bar stools, and, once positioned are never moved.
Image

So, those are the differences. Nonetheless, you've got a very handsome table and, in my opinion, got a heckuva deal on it!

Good find.
And good pics dilettante to explain the difference.
The best thing about finding such a bargain is feeling out
the size and seeing if it works in your space
without spending a ton of cash on an original vintage or a
repro. It even looks better than most knock-offs.
Enjoy it! The price was good.

authentic, or not. that's quite a score for $50.
i'd pick that up in a second.
