Dartington Glass Square Hyacinth Vase FT62 in Midnight Grey with Original Sticker c.1968
For a full product description, see below.
This is a nice example of a classic early Frank Thrower design for Dartington Glass.
The vase has an everted rim surmounting a bulbous upper portion. The base is approximately square in section, with each side being moulded with a circular stippled motif.
The piece is made in ‘Midnight Grey’ glass.
The vase bears the original red plastic label, which has the Dartington ‘D’ logo and the word ‘ENGLAND’. This was the first ever sticker produced by Dartington in 1967 and was replaced in 1968 by a different design.
It has a maximum height of approximately 14.8cm, with a diameter across the rim of about 7.3cm and a width across the base of about 7.8cm.
It is in fair condition for its age, with no chips or cracks, although there is some water staining that is visible from the base up to the bottom of the cylindrical bulb holder. This is visible when the vase is dry but is disguised when it is in use. This wear is reflected in the price.
