    Can anyone tell me anything about this desk? I inherited it and know nothing about it. It's a beautiful piece with hidden drawers that I just found after having it six years.

      Appears to be a mid to late 20th century. Some photos of the drawer joints and back should confirm.

      I have an almost duplicate posted here with a bookcase on top.What are the makers marks on the back of the drawers? Mine are WO16 NP 24. On the rail under the bottom drawer is WO16 NP 24 WAL/ W.E. And the drawer base is longer than the drawer with a screw in a slot to adjust it for shrinkage/ humidity. I can't believe we got the same almost identical piece!!!!

      Also the palm columns slip out, and the foot under the door also. The cabinet is 4-6 inches deeper than the drawers and that's a hidden compartment also.There is 7 secret compartments in my piece.
