Title: G-Plan furniture catalogue
Photographer: unknown
Date: 1956
Decade: 1950-1959
Manufacturer: E Gomme Ltd.
Description: Page 13 of 1956 G-Plan furniture catalogue showing living room set with secretaire cupboard chest B821B, upholstered dining chair B633, armchair and matching settee 500C & S, cocktail table B838, partly glazed bookcase B845 and end fitment B846. Cabinet furniture is finished in light oak.
Notes: Settee and armchair 501 were new in 1954 with foam-rubber seat cushions on fabric-covered tension springs. The other items shown were part of the 1953 collection. This photo was also used for newspaper advertising - see Sunday Express 21.02.1954. Date derived from the fact that catalogue includes items made in tola and black, introduced for 1956, but not 'chinese white' introduced in the latter part of that year.
