    If you are using your phone, email the pictures to yourself as Medium. Save them, then post from there.
    Pictures need to be 1MB or smaller. 800x600.

    Yeah, more like a "hutch" than a desk. Ca. 1880 or so, or at least designed to look that way. Probably a combination of hand made (crest) and precision tools. Stained to look like mahogany or maybe walnut; it's a bit too dark to tell.

    Cool piece!

    Hard to tell from these pics but I am getting a modern import vibe. Back looks to be plywood (????)

    I'd call it a "Stepback" cupboard. :p
    Can't see any construction details so not a clue on age.
    It has Queen Anne tombstone upper doors
    A Victorian pediment
    And William & Mary ball feet?
    I'll guess made the day before yesterday - 1900 or so! :p:eek::hilarious:

    If you get several reply’s from me I apologize this is confusing
    “Hutch” is well made, heavy ( not plywood). It has a pullout shelf. Looks like it was a dark green with gold and burgundy accents. upload_2020-8-3_23-29-4.jpeg upload_2020-8-3_23-29-4.jpeg

    Are these pieces metal or plastic?

    Oh and I think it is meant to represent a kitchen cupboard. The pull out board would be for rolling out cookie or pie dough

    40 inches tall would be pretty big for a dollhouse, wouldn't it?
    Thinking this is a toy most likely
