An advert in the 'Manchester Guardian' 15 Oct 1956 (GA12) notes that 'smooth, cool Chinese white, glowing natural oak and gleaming brass bring a new, exciting look to your bedroom.'

According to an advert in 'The Cabinet Maker' 15 December 1956, the Chinese white range was launched in September 1956 but the B918 chest doesn't appear in 1956 price lists and first appears in the G-Plan 'New Models' folder for 1957.
