:D Thanks, Max!
According to LJ'S 20th CFG, these are Hardie Williamson designs. The exhibition this next Cambridge Glass Fair in going to be on these designs!
They may set the world alight yet,  :D , great to have them in original box, presumably unused!

That's interesting Sue, thanks.  I'll definitely have to go to that, I'll have a Google right now, and see when it is.  

I've been surreptiously collecting these glasses for a little while now (they seem to be dishwasher safe!  :lol: ).  I think my favourites are the yellow smilies as my Mum used to have those.   :D  :D

Vidfletch,
You are looking at the wrong decade. Clappison went to Ravenhead as Chief Designer in 1972, returning to Hornsea Pottery in 1976. You need sales brochures for the 1970s.

Le Casson,

 I read more and indeed it says late seventies. This ties in with 1976. I suppose they were still made after he left.

It is not the White Fire range or Siesta. These were seperate vases in their own right. Not tableware.  I see White Fire and Siesta all the time too. The most interesting thing about White Fire was the legal argument with Whitefriars over the name!

I contacted Rayware today. They own the intellectual and property rights of the Ravenhead name but do not possess the archives! B*gger!!!!!!! LOL!!!

Any suggestions now?
