Hi! I got this dropfront desk, and I've been able to conclude it's very likely Burmese rosewood and made in Thailand, but not much more. I found a stamp well hidden behind one of the drawers, of three elephants inside a triangle and some writing I can't make out.
I would love to know who's the maker, possible age of the desk, value, etc.
Thank you so much!  :)

Hi Matt,

Your desk appears to be made out of mahogany, not Rosewood.

You will find it interesting that this desk is copied from
a Williamsburg desk that was produced by  the Kittinger Furniture Co.
in the 1960's. (see link)
There is nothing I can tell you about the company that made it. There
is no information to support them.

Best Wishes,
