|Classic style and quality - made in Indonesia?

I had some time to spare this afternoon, so I was wandering around Myer looking at the expensive tableware I can't really afford (and would probably break anyway). I was running my eyes over some rather nice cup and saucer sets from Royal Doulton that they had on special (clearance from last year's stock). I was half tempted to splurge when I noticed something that distressed me: these pieces of what I thought were quintessentially English porcelein were Made in Indonesia.
I am sorry, but this is wrong.
I have no objection to buying products made in Indonesia. I am sure that they can some up with some high quality goods too. But when I buy something like Royal Doulton I am definitely expecting to buy English.
Oh well, I suppose in the scheme of things it doesn't really matter. I wasn't really going to buy them.
