What Style is This Called?

We picked up an old drop front desk recently but I know nothing about this style or what the wood is. Is it walnut? (I don't think it's oak). Where would I look for more info on this pretty piece? The carving is amazing and very pretty. Is it Swedish by chance? The dark color tells me no, but the seller (Craigslist), said he thought it was Swedish, and from the 1800's, Hard to confirm anything though.
What style is this desk? Any idea what period/era it's from? All drawers open and the front flips down to reveal cubbies/slots inside the desk.
