Dartington goblet/chalice
« on: Yesterday at 04:43:02 PM »
This came with over 50 boxed dartington items, even came inside (although wrong) a Dartington ring tree box.
It's not marked like the other pieces and its not something I've seen before although looks typical of Dartington.
I'm ashamed to say I've lost my Frank Thrower & Dartington Glass book so struggling a little bit.
Can anyone help?
Stands 9" in tall with a rim diameter just shy of 4"
Thanks in advance!

Can't see it in Mark Hill's Frank Thrower & Dartington Glass book. The other Dartington book I don't have here.

Hello Ben, if your glass has a hollow stem it could be FT31 Manhattan suite. Made from 1968/1971.

It hasn't got a hollow stem unfortunately, feels quite heavy and solid.

I checked every page, concentrating on the knop in the stem and nothing was even similar.

It looks to me like a blank that has not been cut like this ebay one in the link which i think has been cut although the pics are bad but i think you will get what i mean.
