Cup and Saucer PHSL : 345 This object is part of a trial to see if giving specific guidance on research methods makes the game a more successful means of obtaining information about the objects featured. Such an interesting handle. There is quite a lot of information on the internet about bandalasta. This comprehensive site is especially useful: http://www.applecroft.co.uk/bandalasta/. I wonder if it has the answer to this question? Follow the investigation here: http://10most.org.uk/artefact/cup-and-saucer.

MoDiP's documentation was incorrect. This cup and saucer was not made by the Streetly Manufacturing Company. It is made by Brookes & Adams in their urea formaldehyde material called Beatl and is part of the Bandalasta ware range. It appears in an early catalogue that can be see in here: http://10most.org.uk/evidence-locker. It came in this and a deeper version which cost £2/6 pence and £2/3 pence respectively. It was marketed as Bandalasta for Caravan - Camping - Yatching - Bungalow. Lots more information is available here: http://www.applecroft.co.uk/bandalasta/. We are still looking to find who designed at Brookes & Adams - could the designs have been their own?
