What does this mean?

Hi Keith,

Thank you for contacting Mearto with your appraisal inquiry.
Its likely that this is marked somewhere (inside a drawer, on the bottom or on the back) that identifies the maker. It probably wouldn't change the value but if you find a name it should be included on the appraisal so please let me know and I'll update this as necessary.
Based on the photos and information provided, and subject to examination, this is:

An Edwardian style glazed oak desk and bookcase
American or English, first half 20th Century
Surmounted by a removable cornice, two stacked cabinets with top-hinged leaded-glass doors with floral motifs over a bottom-hinged fall-front lid opening to a divided interior, over a single ogee drawer with ogee facade over a stack of three bowfront short drawers flanked by leaded-glass cabinet doors, all on short cabriole legs
84 inches high, 48 inches wide
