A few years ago I ran across what I believed to be a Horner Desk that seemed to me to be a knock off or imitation.. It was made of a lighter oak where most of horners desks where rosewood or walnut (much darker) it was not marked, stamped or tagged and the carvings where clearly not as high quality as the marked originals I have had the joy of seeing in person.
Today I ran across one on ebay that looks exactly like the one I had found all those years ago... So, the question is; taking a look, would you agree that this is a knock off horner desk? or perhaps a lower end inexpensive version made by Horner or another maker?http://www.ebay.com/itm/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=150735415289&item=150735415289&lgeo=1&vectorid=229466
