The fridge slotted beneath the wardrobe opposite, meanwhile, can swallow up to 110 litres of groceries. This was a step into concentrating on the luxury market a bold move at the time. IMO it is not so for the dealers that “handle” the cases nor the makers they refer back to who pick up or not, the claims made of them.
