I thought about that Kevin, but I'm aware I'm going out on a limb here when I say this, I'm not entirely convinced they are ALL Chinese, or perhaps I should say I'm not entirely convinced they are all rubbish.

Edit : Okay now I feel guilty and helped the seller by sending the article.

It's worth noting that the seller has revised the description and it now shows the correct attribution and country of origin, even if the listing category is still wrong the seller's amendment needs to be recognised and applauded.
