As cybegrannie said, it will take a lot more info and more and better pictures to figure out more details--although there are many unbranded pieces out there so the marker may be impossible to determine.

The scratch/writing on the bottom looks like it could be what a store put on it when it was on the selling floor (either new or used if you bought it at resale). While I am not positive, I don't think it will be useful to identify the piece.

I can tell you what you have, in generic terms appears to be a Louis XV Style or Queen Anne Style (to me it is not quite ornate enough for the Louis/but yet not quite as stark as a Queen Anne) Game Table with shaped apron on cabriole legs. It could be a 1920s to a today piece--very hard to tell from the photos.

Also hard to tell is if the piece is all wood or veneer. The underside looks like wood, but the front has a veneer look--but it would take loosing at it much closer to figure that out.

Post back with more photos and sizes (height, width, depth) and perhaps I can help more. Thanks for sharing!

I am having a really hard time making out the signature on the bottom of the table. It almost looks like a child has written on the bottom of the table because the signature looks like it has a heart on it or something like this. The image is just not so clear at all. Can you try and read the signature on the bottom of the table and post back here.

That would help to narrow down the search and see if I can find any other tables made by this person. I am not even sure this is a gaming table at all. This could actually be some type of a desk or even an end table by the looks of it.

Sorry but there is no way to identify this table - even as to what type of table from your pictures.
Please post a full view of the front (not looking down), full view of side, full view of top unopened and also one of of top with leaves open. There should also be a picture of the underside of the table showing the workmanship/fasteners.

Also; please post any past knowledge/history you have concerning this table.
Another member, Pghgirl, will probably be able to help you if these pictures are posted.

This is truly a lovely piece! I love how it looks to have a blend different wood and carvings. It seems that it is a rare one and maybe you should take your pictures to a furniture seller/appraiser. Make sure that you take and show all the aspects in pictures of this piece. It would be worth a try with little info on this table, knowing the history.
