Note 1: Some confusion exists over model numbers. The DTR2L may initially have been the DTR21, the model number changing to DTR2L and DTR2B when seperate London and Birmingham versions were made in 1949.

Note 2 : Announced in the press that it would be available in mid-december. Also available with short Queen Anne style legs.

Note 3 : The DTR6 does not appear in later price guides (1953, 1954) yet these guides do include the earlier models. The only reference to the model is from a price guide in the "Trader" magazine for December 1950 which gave the price as "provisional" so perhaps this set never went into procuction. It may be coincidental but at about this time the original founder and managing director of the company resigned and adverts began to appear Denco sets in chassis-only form or as kits.
