No need to shout please. Have you looked through the Whitefriar's catalogues? http://www.whitefriars.com/catalogues/

You say they are mould blown; they can't be blown if they are solid. If they are not solid we need to know. Are they really moulded or are they cut? Or are they moulded and then cut?
