Abner Cutler & Son were cabinetmakers in Buffalo, New York who started production in the late 1820s. The firm specialised in rolltop desks and by the 1850s had been granted seven patents related to the desk's mechanism. The company was known as 'Cutler & Son' by the 1870s and exhibited at the 1876 Philadelphia Centennial Exhibition. This is a rare survivor and a beautiful piece of engineering in its own right. Circa 1880.
American panel back chair is not included and is for sale separately. Price reflects used condition. Perfectly useable and a good looking antique to be used. The desk comes apart in three sections for easy movement, with the two pedestals being able to be moved independently of the roll top section and back kick board to kneehole.
