In 1906, the company Portois & Fix celebrated its 25th anniversary. On this occasion, the company participated in the “Austrian arts and crafts” exhibition in London at the Sloan Square exhibition centre. In the exhibition catalogue “Imperial Royal Austrian Exhibition: Vienna – London”, a “Smoking Room” can be found. The desk offered by us was presented in this ensemble in a very similar version.
