The Furniture of Poul Kjaerholm catalogue Raisonne. 2007, p 219 this catalogue dates from 1961 but if you look at the illustrations on the same page the same box with a sample card is illustrated. Possibly Sheridan has them dated the wrong way round and this is the catalogue that was produced from 1957 (see image). Condition: Outer box has is rubbed and discoloured in places and has a small tear on one of the edges.
The inner box has a tear along the bottom seam as can be seen in the images. The material sample is creased. Some cards have slight edge wear but most look like they have been in the box the last 60 years.
