Text Transcript: A type-written sheet associated with this photograph reads as follows: "Danish Design Dining Group. The novelty and distinction of Ib-Kofod-Larsen's new sideboard design are matched only by the quality of its construction and by its practicality. Genuine Rio Rosewood veneers on the outside, solid Rosewood legs, real leather handles, lined throughout in fine Honduras mahogany - this specification is proof of its quality. One has only to see the truly fantastic storage capacity - space for 25 bottles, a removable drinks tray, a shelf for six sets of glasses, a fitted cutlery drawer, two linen drawers, and that's only the right-hand side! - to appreciate its practicality. Team this handsome sideboard with a table that can seat up to ten people in comfort - great comfort if they are sitting on our amply proportioned Panelback chairs - and you see why we are so proud of this new dining group.
P.S. Trend-setting is not for everyone! Consequently this group is also available at a lower price in the firmly established and popular teak finish - sideboard handles in Bombay Rosewood".
