About Me

No Fixed Abode, Home Counties, United Kingdom
I’m a 51-year-old Aspergic CAD-Monkey. Sardonic, cynical and with the political leanings of a social reformer, I’m also a toy and model figure collector, particularly interested in the history of plastics and plastic toys. Other interests are history, current affairs, modern art, and architecture, gardening and natural history. I love plain chocolate, fireworks and trees but I don’t hug them, I do hug kittens. I hate ignorance, when it can be avoided, so I hate the 'educational' establishment and pity the millions they’ve failed with teaching-to-test and rote 'learning' and I hate the short-sighted stupidity of the entire ruling/industrial elite, with their planet destroying fascism and added “buy-one-get-one-free”. I also have no time for fools and little time for the false crap we're all supposed to pretend we haven't noticed, or the games we're supposed to play.

D is for Doric

A made-up brand if ever there was one! Although they have a postcode and everything, I bet they share it with several other domestic household product and catering equipment brands!

We are going to be looking at the products of this 'company' a couple more times in the next few days, but these came-in about a month ago and are not covered by the forthcoming posts.

Showing signs of having been taken out several years on the trot, it's often hard to date this seasonal cake-decorating stuff, the graphics shrill 1980's, but the condition suggests later?

Contents of both sets; A mix of styrene, ethylene and poured, polyester resin polymers obviously bought-in from other makers, some is shared with more recent Culpitt stuff, while (as we shall see) Doric also carry the same tuff as Fiddes Payne.
