TVM, and applause,
there has always been a major doubt that these were Czechoslovakian production, no documentation etc, and very nice that we now appear to have confirmation. So I was wrong about Scandinavia.... oh well, what do I know.....
Thanks again and regards,

Hi All!  Thanks for all your comments :P  Only just got my tinternet connection up and running today, so apologies for the delay in answering.

I can confirm that my nailhead is textured on two sides only and plain on the other two, and that it is 16cm high.  Unfortunately its in storage along with virtually everything else for the foreseable future, so can't give any other measurements except to say that 4.5cm sq. seems about right from memory.  However I agree with Emmi that it is WF :P .  There was never any doubt in my mind about that, only the correct name of the colour.    I agree, its really tricky just looking at photos :roll: and its difficult to ID these textured pieces without actually handling them.  Hologram pics. that's what we need :lol:

Great ID on the small 'votive' Ian 8) .  Good to know where they came from.  I think I've got a vase with a Bond Ware sticker on somewhere.  It rings a bell.   When I eventually get things out of storage, I'll submit a pic.

Thanks once more folk 8)

Can you folks create a Bond Ware thread with the various examples... thanks. Seems to be an important one for a higher profile than in such a mixed up thread.
