I think it's the demand that has changed Phil, these things are no longer replacements for old stuff that has broken or worn out, they are for new build and yuppie remodelling, excuse the yankeeism.

VM

I often used to say, if it wasn't for the amount of stuff that we used to throw on the fires in the 60's & 70's (when we were still allowed to have them) the stuff being sold at exorbitant prices today would be a fraction of the price.

In the 80's we were selling reclaimed imperial size bricks for a £100 per 1000. Now they are a £1 each a £1000 per 1000. Its unbelievable. I can remember if we couldn't sell them as hard core we used to have to pay to tip them.

I wouldn't be at all surprised, it's a scary bit of kit, as you will see when I can get the photo's to upload.

Would these have stood on the bar with water in them?

Denise,

I would have though that was the most probable use for it, but as a rule in my experience water jugs were smaller and usually advertised whisky. Though in my opinion water is only fit for washing in and should never be used to pollute a good Scotch. The only thing you put in whisky is another measure of whisky.

No Signman, I haven't yet. I am tempted but I cause enough damage with a modern super safe razor so I think something as dodgy as a Rolls may be the end of me.
I will of course be sterilising it good and proper before I ever do try one.
