Dartington? Or? Does anyone know the pattern name please?
« on: May 12, 2007, 02:55:55 PM »
Tall vase, I bought assuming it was Dartington, but I can't find the pattern anywhere...

so a) is is actually Dartington?  If not, who?

and b) what is the pattern name?
Many thanks

I've got one of these. I also bought it assuming it was Dartington and they sell them as Dartington on ebay. Pattern name I do not know. The colour is right. However I looked at the Dartington catalogue on Whitefriars.org and cannot see it there.

Thanks Pat, I found it on ebay too but I don't like using ebay as an identification tool, there are amazing things on there that are actually something else! 

If I found several of them, all with the same pattern name, I'd probably go with it, but as nobody actually knows what it is called, I am left wondering if we are all just making the same assumption..... ???

Ah yes, I did now. 

Yes, I checked the Dartington catalogues before I posted, which is another reason I am starting to doubt my first view of who made this.

I am sure someone here will recognise it.

Lynne, Blenko made vases with daisy type motifs on them - very similar to yours (I can't find a picture right now but I'll keep checking) and I remember thinking at the time how much they resembled Dartington.  I'm sure someone like Adam or Charles has posted one on here before  ???

Thanks Pip, I'll do a search for Blenko. 

If it is , I think that'd be nice!   ;D

Actually Lynne, this is the thread I was thinking of and, as you can see, the Blenko has much simpler flowers ... sorry  :-\

Ah, you beat me to it!   ;D  I was just about to send you to the same place...

And I can't find anything even similar at the Blenko sites, nor can I find this colour in the Blenko colour pages.  So.....

Slide back down the snake back to the start...

I posted one of those on the WF.com IsIt a year or two back.  I got a Dartington reply first, then someone else said no way (might have been Max?).  Following up later on someone who has several of them suggested that the glass was not of the type/standard used by Dartington and that they had rather sharp edges unlike pretty much all the Dartington I have.

So...I still don't know who made them but Dartington seems unlikely.

I started with Carnival glass, then other C20 irridescent, then Whitefriars ducks, then Dartington FT Daisies etc, then Whitefriars Tricorns...when will it end?
