Drawer Pull Closeup
Drawer Pull Closeup  
I purchased this desk at a thrift store years ago. I have no idea about the origin or age. My wife wants to redo it, but we wanted to make sure we didn't destroy a valuable antique.  There is a partial makers mark which I can provide, but I could only attach 2 pictures. Thank you.

Answer
Hi Jeremy,

I would not be too concerned about destroying the value of the desk since
it would not be of any great value. A desk such as yours if it were at
auction would sell between $50. to $75. It is in the Jacobean style which
is not very popular these days.

Best wishes,
