I have gotten a desk I believe of hardwood. It is simple, tall legs, desktop with attached, raised shelf, two drawers. In one drawer in a Franklin Shockey Hand Burnished Makers Mark . I wacant find this desk, this mark anywhere. I want very much to ask help identifying this desk. I will attach a picture of the desk and the mark that is inside of one drawer.[attachment]20190719_114039.jpg[/attachment][attachment]20190719_114223.jpg[/attachment][attachment]20190719_114207.jpg[/attachment][attachment]20190719_114207.jpg[/attachment][attachment]20190719_110602.jpg[/attachment][attachment]20190719_114039.jpg[/attachment]

Thank you Martha! Your continued help with this issue has been very informative for me. It is obvious I am new at this whole antique furniture thing, as it’s not usually what I sell. But I have a lot of other antiques that I can’t even identify what they are. I will be I guess starting a new string on two items soon. Are you able to somehow bookmark my page and watch for those new strings? Here for you is my direct Gmail address although it has a pseudonym not my real name. I could simply just send you a couple of three pictures and you could just tell me what they are and then maybe I could look them up. I realize now this is a public forum and I maybe can’t give out my Gmail address. Can you answer that for me? Thanks in advance and thanks for all that you helped me with so far. You even helped me with learning how to attach the pictures. You’re the best Martha. Peace and goodwill to you

Since it was such a short lived company,, I have only found three for commercial furniture and yours,, so four total so far !!
Hand Burnished pine,, Sculptured Pine,, and Sculptured Maple plus yours !!
They did not have a standard company logo at all from what I found !! They just marked each furniture group with its product line type !!
With your desk,, because it has the modified Queen Anne style foot at front,,I think it was made close to the end of the company around 1960 because thats when the Queen Anne style was resurfacing in furniture !! It was one of those on again,,off again styles that kept coming back in vogue !!
I remember the two main styles of that era was either Queen Anne or French Provencial !! I had the French Provencial in fruit wood finish !!

Thank you Martha for your response. I would still love to know if there is some place a digest of all the stamps that the Shockey company used throughout their lifetime. I have tried exhaustive searches and nothing yet any ideas? And thank you again!

Many companies contracted with schools to supply furniture !! This would have been for an adult or teacher not a student desk !! That is why it has a different stamp than the other furniture !! No difference in value !! I see you have it listed for $500. just wait and see if there is any interest !!
