Dartington Glass...Was there a reason for this design?

The description of the glass bowl,  it has a stem base, with a groove swirl pattern on the stem.
On the side of the bowl (I would describe it as a table centre piece fruit bowl ) is an engraving of 'Traitors Gate', as used in the House pf Commons logo.
There are no chips,flaws or cracks to the bowl it is perfect.
All I really need to know is was this a commissioned piece? and possibly what year it could have been made?. There is a sticker on the base saying 'Dartington 24% lead crystal'.
 At this moment I have no consideration to sell it, just wanting to gather info.

Dartington Glass - Carousel design
« Reply #2 on: June 30, 2005, 10:07:23 AM »
Hello :D
I have  found out that the design of the bowl is the Carousel design, discontinued now, and the 'House of Common s' logo is a possibility as they have an account with Dartington Glass. It has been recommended that I contact a 20th century glass valuer for more information, and possible value. Please can anyone help.

Ps: No longer will this bowl be used, but for decoration purposes only.
