    Spoke to my mum, as far as she can remember they didn't have any trouble with the transfers. There were alot of seconds but this is usually the case with pottery.

    They were made by Kevin and David Godfrey, two brothers who owned CVW Design who had been commisioned by Ditto to produce them.

    Full sets were run of each of the seven but the company folded before completing, who bought the stock or moulds afterwards i don't know.

    My mother is still in contact with the Godfreys so i shall try to find out more.

    Thanks for the extra info MaxPower, now i am going to have to find the seventh one!

    I will ask my mother today about the problems with the transfers. As for them being produced by Ditto, i will look into this as the company that made them definately was CVW Design, unless they had started trading under another name.

    Thanks for the welcome Electric Robot and Son, i'm very pleased with mine sitting on my shelf too!

    Cheers

    Hi all, I know I am late on this post but I hope this information finds you all.

    My mother used to work for CVW Design, a pottery near Earles Colne, Uk. They made the moulds and produced the limited set for Ditto. I am 32 now so at the time I remember spending my school holidays at the pottery watching them being made. I have six robots which I will post later today hopefully.

    I would be interested in gettin a copy of the brochure joe.k posted, any chance of a scan of the brochure?

    I will find out some more info from my mother, if anyones still interested?
