Identifying an Old Sewing Cabinet

I have seen the more common styles of Martha Washington sewing tables, but cannot really identify this particular table. Can anyone help?

This one looks like yours and is only identified as a Martha Washington cabinet. www.pinterest.com/.../

It sold for $60.

Thank you. Speaking of identifying marks, I took a second look and did find a stamp of some sort that looks like GGO. I will try to add that to the pictures.

I have another more traditional style Martha Washington cabinet with three drawers and four legs and that actually has a small metal plaque on it. Maybe the stamp on this one means something. Again, thank you.

The table is identified by the name of the manufacture of Martha Washington. They did not give the table any other name but this one and you can see them listed on eBay under this name.

I have checked and there is really nothing about this table online and it does not have any type of identification numbers. The manufacturer just calls it a Martha Washington sewing cabinet.

This is a neat piece and I can see why it is a mystery. 2 drawers and the cross slat legs are not traditional in Martha Washington Sewing pieces.

I am wondering if you have either a "franken piece" where a carpenter put together two things to make a repair to a broken leg OR if you have a straight up custom piece built for the the lady of the house to meet her specific needs.

It appears old based on the dovetailing, but I can't see the rest of the construction, like screws etc.

Best with a neat piece like this to take it to a professional antique dealer and have him or her do a look see for you so you know 1st what it is and 2nd, so you can value it.
