An old design1 is invalid if it is registered in respect of features of shape or configuration which are dependent upon the appearance of another article2 of which the article is intended by the author of the design to form an integral part3. The word 'integral' is present so as not to exclude from valid registration items which do not stand alone but which nevertheless do not form part of a whole article such as cups and saucers, knives and forks4.
