Anyone Recognize this Antique Desk?

My mom gave me this desk over a decade ago, and I know nothing about it. Does anyone recognize this or have any clue as to how I could identify it? There do not appear to be any markings in or on the drawers.

Without brand name/maker, id numbers, it is really hard to place the piece. Here is a link to a few desk on consignment to give you a idea on the pricing. - www.chairish.com/.../antique-desks

If you can not find the marking in the drawers then there might be something on the underside of the desk. If you can't find anything there the only other option would be to contact an antique furniture dealer in your area and show him some images of the desk.

They know a lot about the different brands and who makes them and the period they are from.

Unfortunately, I haven't seen anything there either. I will be sure to reach out to some dealers here.

Perhaps another member can provide more information about your desk but I'm not really seeing anything that would help identify even the age but considering the metal 'clamps' on the underside, I do not believe it is an antique - but could be vintage.

You might have some luck if you post it on one of these sites:

You piece looks newer, meaning no older than the 1980s based on what I can see from the photos.

The construction looks newer, machine joining, etc. Do you know if it is the original hardware?

The piece looks a lot like a Bombay company piece, but they did not usually use that type of hardware, which is why I asked if they are original.

There are a lot of Bombay pages on Pinterst, so perhaps you can match your piece to one of their old catalogs or fan pages. Sadly the company has been gone for a while.

If you are asking because you want to sell the piece, sofa/console pieces typically sell from $25 to $200 depending on where you live and the supply and demand. In places like big cities where people live apartments they don't sell. They sell best in locations where people have large homes and space to put a table behind a sofa or by a window.

Post back what you learn! I will keep digging through my resources!

Thanks for sharing
