Default Premier Artist Birch

I have two sets of Premier Artist Series drums. The Artist Birch set that I bought new in the 90's have badges that say "British Made Since 1922". The newer Artist Maple kit has badges that say Made in China.
Were the older Artist Series really made in Britain or does the badge just mean they are a British company?
I'm putting them up for sale and I don't want to misrepresent. Thanks, David

The Premier Drum factory was at Leicester right up until the 80's at least. I used to deliver to the building right opposite.

Cool. A good chance they are English made then. Thanks Thud.

Both the Artist Birch and Maple were British made for a year or two before they went offshore for production. i had an Artist Birch Heritage Club kit in a beautiful silver sparkle lacquer finish. Premier's chrome just gleamed when it was done in England.
