Mike, I have rotated the images for you.

Sometimes some editing routines flip the images for reasons unknown to me. It was also interesting that when I rotated and saved copies of your images, they each came out at over the Board limit of 125 Kb each! Very odd. But I optimised them to fit again.

I was hoping you had an id, Kev. :)
My guts are tentatively wondering Beranek, but I want to know what Christine thinks.

Hi.  Could well be Murano - but may be fairly recent Czech Republic.  Hard to say, as the products can be very similar.

Thanks Kev for rotating the images. My software for downloading and storing images from my camera to my computer has been updated and 'improved' ....I suspect it's something to do with that , it didn't used to happen ...I do have a camera that is well over 10 years old now though.

Thanks for all your comments I will wait for one to pop up with a label ...It could well be fairly recent ! Cheers, Mike
