I just obtained a drop drawer secretary style desk.  Acorn style front
legs/feet.  Wood/metal (brass?) lower cabinet handles.  It is very a
very sturdy piece.  On the back, there is a label

C.W.S. Ltd
Cabinet Factory
Radcliffe

Has anyone heard of this company??  If so, what is it's history,
location, etc.

Thanks,
Mark

p.s. please respond via email as I don't get to check the newsgroups
very often!!!!!!

In the UK, it's the Co-operative Wholesale Society, and they did make
(and badge) furniture, beds and so on, between the wars.

I wish to extend my thanks to everyone who helped me learn about the
Cooperative Wholesale Society.  Everyone who provided info was most
kind...

Cheers,
Mark
