Ask about this object

The dining room table with 6 chairs by Portois & Fix was presented in 1902 at the Austrian Exhibition in London and in 1906 at the Austrian Exhibition in Earls Court, London. Since the furniture was very well received there, the entire series was designated "Modell London" (the London model). This is demonstrated by the two original paper labels found on the back of a corresponding Portois & Fix sideboard (Autumn Salon 2008, cat. no. 2: Fabr [Fabrikationsnummer - manufacturer’s number] 2224, Buffet Modell London, Macassar, 9/11/06, Schäfer).
