Dartington expert needed for help on FT2 posy

(1/1)

Lustrousstone:
I think know what I have. It's A Dartington FT2 posy but it's in a pale amber. I think it was destined to be Flame but it was never heat struck because when I shine a UV light on it there is a bright orange glow, which I think is caused by cadmium, the colourant used for Flame. Has anyone come across this colour before? It has plenty of base wear and feels just like other Dartington I've handled, so I don't think it's a repro

Lustrousstone:
Is nobody even going to disagree with me!

Anne:
HI Christine, I didn't even know that Dartington FT2 came in any colour so am no help to you at all. :-[  Interested to know what others think though.

Lustrousstone:
I answered my own question by accidentally opening the right page at the back of Dartington Glass the First Twenty Years. It's kosher and described as rare  ;D

Anne:
 :clap: Well found Christine!
