Text Transcript: A duplicate copy of this photo is in GBX06. Typed sheet on the reverse of the duplicate photo reads:
'Decorated Furniture is the G-Plan answer for the feminine woman. Something exciting in bedroom furniture designs - this lovely floral sprigged range in the latest spring collections. This delicate range of 14 pieces echoes the prettier, more feminine trend of the times. Chinese inspired and traced in soft shades of pale lilac and green on grey, the flowers soften the clean lines of each bedroom piece. Prepared by Sandersons and bonded in Warerite laminated plastic the gentle design is permanently safeguarded, but it can be kept sparkling clean with the touch of a damp cloth.
G-Plan's DECORATED Cupboard Chest 1745 costs £32.10. Dressing tables range from £39.10. Wardrobe 1090 - in picture overleaf - from £41.10.
