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 some desks at the 1876 Philadelphia Centennial Exhibition. By the early 1900s, the firm was known as the ‘Cutler Desk Co.’ In 1930 it was taken over by the Sikes Chair Co., also of Buffalo.
