Thanks for your reponses....
I brought them in April 2012 and contacted them first about the problem in April 2013 with photos (no reply), so I contacted them again at the weekend (still no reply), although I'm not sure they'll give me the time of day as its getting on for 18 months since I brought them.
I checked the website, although what it said over 12 mths ago, who knows! I'm sure I wouldn't have brought anything that said it was only for indoor use as I spent a lot of time doing my homework before I brought anything. At the moment, the website says 'they will age outdoors over time'.... nothing about the finish flaking off!
