    I picked this up yesterday off of Craigs List. The man said they bought it about 15 years ago and was told by the dealer that it was very old. They kept it in the garage all this time. Never used it in the house.

    They have no clue when it was made, who made it or any other info about it.

    The brass drawer pulls are Lion heads. The feet are a carved ram's head and the feet bottom are claws.

    You can feel the etching. It is NOT carved into the glass/mirror; it feels like it sits on top of the glass sides and it is on the inside of the mirror.
    Of course, it needs cleaning.

    48" wide
    25" deep
    31" high front
    46" high back

    If anyone knows anything about this type of desk, especially since it has an etched mirror in the back and etched glass on the sides, I'd love to know.

      That's is gorgeous. Such a shame they never used it. I sure hope you get lots of use out of that beauty. Good luck, hope you find the information you seek.
