    I need guidance on this piece. Potential value. Era. Style. I can’t find anything. It’s so beautiful and I love the unique style. I don’t have ANY information on it. I THINK it’s either Victorian or an American Drop Front made sometime between 1900-1950. I’m trying to to figure out who it was made by and when. There were some markings but they are illegible.

      I'd say you are in the ball park with your age estimation. Need some additional photos to fully evaluate. Photos to consider adding-- interior, joints, back and hardware.

      What you have is commonly referred to as a "Secretary", from the Golden Oak Era (1890's -1920's) of furniture. The graining on the door and above it is called Quarter Sawn or Tiger Oak. The glass knobs are not original to the piece. Hope this helps.
