Regarding the Azurene range.
In 1979, I believe Iestyn Davies while a student worked for a short time at IOW.
c1986 Stuart Strathearn introduced several designs by Iestyn and the Ebony & Gold range bears a strong similarity in decoration to Azurene. Reports from employees referred to an big 'discussion' between these two companies.
I am interested in how that discussion was resolved, assuming it did happen?
