Thanks Brin!
Half are mine and the other half belong to a close friend.

Yes, I think we have a similar taste, which is great, we don't find it too often in the forum.

I have just received a private message from Alexis in Portugal and although my Portugese is non-existent I think that the message is that Secla is still in operation.

The website is at

www.secla.pt

I've been searching on the forum for information about the mark "FOREIGN" and haven't found any conclusions. Does someone knows exactly why some pieces that came into the UK market used to be marked "FOREIGN"?
Thanks.

I used to know this Sad Was it something about the WW11, when items marked with certain countries wouldn't be too popular for a UK market?

Thanks Sue.

I've read this story about items from Germany and Japan, but I don't think it's accurate because items from Portugal and Italy also appear marked "FOREIGN". I think it has to do with the UK import legislation from after WWII and would like to know in exactly what terms.
If someone can help, I would be very grateful.

Thanks,
Rita

From what I could dig up, US legislation insisted imported pieces were marked in English. Direct translation from some languages (czech, russian, japanese, etc) meant place names could have a wide variety of spellings, and any misspellings would result in the goods being refused entry.
So I think the answer is a) because imports had to be marked, and b) stamping them 'foreign' was the easiest method.

and, Why did they continue makring them 'foreign' after WWII? - Probably because there was little change in manufacturing practices during the 30-50s due to the recession years and lack of funding for restructuring.
