This is an English Empire Revival style piece. CWS is short form for the Co-operative Wholesale Society, which began cabinet making in 1893. The Birmingham factories, which opened in the 1920s, were equipped with large, well-fitted workshops. They produced for the regional supply of furnishing needs. The Cabinet Factory, Hay Mills and the Bedstead Factory, Belmont Row were also used for the production of pianos. The C.W.S encouraged piano buying, with good pianos at moderate prices.
