Managed to get the box with this vase today, and by the little leaflet dont think it can be that old as it refers to dish washer proof  ::).

If an item says 'Microwave Proof' then that's an indication of fairly recent production however dishwashers have been around for quite a number of years so don't let the label 'Dishwasher Proof' fool you into thinking it's definitely recent.  My Mum got her first dishwasher in the early 1970s and we've got an advertising photo of my aunty 'modelling/showing' a dishwasher in the 1950s.

The Dartington Crystal is a clue. Dartington Crystal wasn't formed until 1987. Until then it was Dartington Glass, although it did make items in crystal
