    I have no information on it other than my great grandmother purchased it new at some point. The logo is in the drawer and scratched a bit. It appears to say "ASE FURNITURE" As farr as what it legible there at the top in gold lettering.

      Thank you. It's a favorite family heirloom. But my dad scratched the logo out as a little boy.

      I agree with Sean68. My dad had one quite similar. They are commonly called a library desk and/or Amish library desk because of the book shelves on the sides. Age is difficult with these pictures but again I think Sean68 is fairly close.

      My Grandpa had an almost identical library desk like that, Mission Style, purchased 1924 from a furniture mail-order store out of Chicago, Illinois. 49"W x 31D" X 29 1/2" H, I have seen the actual purchase agreement, since Grandpa kept everything, and if I remember right the catalog company was Hartman, or something like that. (I could look that up if anyone is interested.) But there may have been one manufacturer who made and marketed through several different mail-order catalogs.
