I believe this is a Queen Anne style vanity or dressing table -- actually not a desk. It appears to made of rosewood, which is a protected species and highly regulated in commerce. Probably worth consulting a professional dealer on this one; they can assess the value based on details we can't discern from the image (joints, etc.).

I think your best bet on wood type, age, maker, etc., is to consult an antiques appraiser that specializes in furniture. They will be able to look it over thoroughly, determine condition, and answer all your questions. Good Luck !!!

This could be an original or a reproduction. Look for identifying marks in a drawer, underneath or behind the piece. This will help you figure out who made it, how old it is and how much it is worth.

It is a ladies dressing table. Missing mirror and chair or stool.

Handles do not look original.

Age is hard to tell as is if it is a real burled wood or a veneer. I need to see pieces in person to better determine age and value.

I see you have it on insta appraisers site. Maybe they have better eyes than I do.

Post back what the tell you. Are you asking to value to sell it?

A ladies vanity/dressing table.
Probably a reproduction but check for any marks, numbers on back and inside drawers.
I agree with PGHgirl that it probable had a stool/short chair and a mirror.
Handles should be replaced with same period style handles.
If InstAppraial provides information please post back.

You can also post these pictures (and picture of back and underside of drawers) on Reddit and other sites.
