Help! I can’t figure out this label on a mission oak desk

I just got this a oak desk and it has various numbers marking parts (drawer and slat where the drawer slides in both marked 103) the bottom part is marked 2380). The insignia on the label looks like a steam engine coming right at you with CM co or MC co. I thought Michigan cha R company but it doesn’t match any of their labels posted online

"Lead will oxidize when heated to 600-800 degrees Celsius. It does not oxidize in water. It will corrode (turns white) when it comes in contact with acetic acid (found in wood)."

"Lead does oxidise, it is well documented, oxidisation is a form of corrosion, tarnish is a result of corrosion, therefore lead does tarnish. It is not so much the touching of lead which leads to lead poisoning, it is touching lead which has…"

"Try making a small knife cut on back, deep enough to penetrate the brown stain. The cut should be silver colored. Lead doesn't oxidize or tarnish. It is very malleable and bends easily. Lead will not hurt you to touch it, only if you eat it or…"

"John showed an image earlier that it is indeed in relief.  I kind of think a pottery stamp would be lighter than a 10" x 4" x ½" slab of solid lead. As to the coloured patches, it could be oxidation of the lead, but…"

"It appears to be in relief to the background, correct?  And what about those light brown marks?  Perhaps it is a stamp for pottery and such?"
