This mahogany kidney shaped antique desk dates from the Edwardian period, circa 1900, and is of the highest quality made by T. B. & W. Cochayne of Sheffield. Originally opened as a draper’s shop in 1829, T. B. & W. Cochayne expanded to become a large department store, with its own cabinet making factory. Its premises were eventually destroyed, along with many of the company records in the Sheffield Blitz of 1940. This particular desk crafted by them has a raised curved back above a beautifully figured kidney shaped top with ebony string inlay and moulded edge. It has a central drawer over knee hole and two smaller drawers, all beautifully shaped, mahogany lined and with the original brass handles. The figuring of the mahogany all over the piece is wonderful. The antique desk stands on eight tapering legs with brass castors and has unusual and delightful ‘X’ shaped cross stretchers. It is a warm medium shade of mahogany with a striking grain, good patina, is in very good condition and has been beautifully cleaned using a traditional form of wax finishing.
