Expert:  Glenda B. replied 8 months ago.

Hello

The Desk dates from the late 1800 to 1900's. ***** ***** and Son were in business, Birmingham England, producing locks during this time. It seems they went out of business sometime during the early part of the 1900's. If the desk is not marked with a makers name there is no way to know who made this. But, It can be valued to sell on today's market.

Can you tell me the condition of the desk.

Glenda
