Our side board was part of the dining room designed by Josef Hoffmann in 1899/1900 especially for the World Exhibition in Paris. It was first presented in the Austrian Museum for Art and Industry in February 1900 in a pavilion that had specifically been designed for the Paris World Exhibition.

In the catalogue for Tefaf 2015 we showed the large side board designed for the same room as catalogue number 1.
