Here is a Vintage Desk of unknown type. The desk is wood and cast iron and the top opens up from the front for storage. The front face has a slot in the wood to pass paper through. The cast iron has initials, but unknown what they stand for. If anyone knows what this was used for and when, please let me know. Also, the top of the desk has an addition to it with the same cast iron initials.

    Did anyone ever find out who the manufacturer of this desk is? I've only seen that stand/legs on one other table and this is the only one I found online.

    I have just found this site. I also have a desk like this one, but mine has a hole in the top with metal around it, I guess for an inkwell. Mine doesn't have the extra pc on top. Same marking on the scroll legs and has the slot cut out in front face. Does anyone have any information on it? Thanks,

    The desk was manufactured for the Metropolitan Life Insurance Company (MLI Co. in cast iron legs). It was used by insurance agents to write policies.
