Dartington Crystal ‘Salad Bowl and Cheeseboard’ DG434 in Optic with Original Sticker
For a full product description, see below.
This is an unusual multipurpose piece by Dartington Crystal and dating to the early 1990s.
The piece has an upper lead crystal dome, with a thick, flattened knop. This doubles as a foot when the piece is inverted to be used as a salad bowl. The whole is made from ribbed glass, which is more commonly referred to as ‘optic’. It bears the original black and gold sticker, which reads ‘DARTINGTON ENGLAND’. In addition, it is marked on the edge with the Dartington 'D' logo.
The lower portion is made from wood, with a bevelled edge to allow for fitting of the domed ‘lid’. On the underside, it bears the original paper label, which reads ‘WE RECOMMEND THIS BOARD IS LIGHTLY OILED WITH VEGETABLE OIL’.
It does not appear to have ever been used.
The upper domed portion has a height of approximately 8.6cm, with a diameter across the rim of about 15.4cm and across the knop/foot of about 7.7cm. The lower wooden base has a maximum diameter of about 16.9cm.
It is in excellent condition, with no chips or cracks.
