I'm not convinced it's a date; it looks pretty recent to me. I agree, Continental, or maybe further East, judging by the decoration

I agree (ref date) Naomi; I have had it for a good few years (under 10), but it felt fairly new when I bought it.
Thank you all for your inputs folks, much appreciated :-)
