Notes: This photograph was also used for advertising - see House & Garden April 1954, Sunday Express 21.02.1954, News Chronicle 11.06.1954, Surrey Comet Sept 1954. Also appears in the G-Plan 'New Models' folder for 1954-1955 which notes that the designer was 'VBW'. 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.
