I've owned two, seen another four or five and they appear in films fairly often as they were produced in large quantities so worth about £35 each

Be careful tho' as I've been told by various folk they came out of India in the 1970s so may not be old enough to be legal under the antique exemption.

60's - 70's production, you see them in profusion at antiques fairs, I was at Kempton Park yesterday and saw at least a dozen all of equally low quality. Worth whatever someone will give you, but are not covered under the "antique" exemption, they must be proven to be 100 years old to comply. I couldn't see any way to do this.

Agreed - they get sold because most people don't realise how modern they are. Unfortunately, ignorance is not a legal defence. These are illegal to buy and sell in the UK and therefore I must close this listing. Sorry :(
