Hello, In order for me to properly assess what you have I will need to see images and clear, in-focus close-ups of the label. If you had already attached images to your initial posting, they are not showing for me here on my end. Please send the photos at your convenience. There is not an extra charge to provide more pictures here. ~Nora

Hi, Some of the mahogany labels either meant that the wood used on the item was genuine mahogany and that the maker was a member of a 'fair trade' style group that ensured they only used real mahogany. The group came about in the mid 20th century to ensure buyers they were getting the real thing. I can confirm this further for you if you would like to send images. There is not an additional cost to do so here. ~Nora
