Answer
it is from the 1920s.  if there is no label there is no way to determine the manufacturer from the 5000 operating at that time.

the face is walnut and/or mahogany veneer, base is either sweet gum or tulip poplar stained.

it is jacobean style

style of leg is called cup and cover

clean with no issues these sell in a shop at 450.

will clean up nicely with furniture paste wax.  toluene free Briwax is a good one in a brown color.  use no oils.
