Permission kindly granted by seller on ebay to use her photo of this vase on the board.
The vase isn't labelled and I have said I think it could be a Ravenhead Flair piece rather than Dartington.
It's the first one I've seen in this colour, and the lady describes it as cinnamon

That was really good of her m, and a useful addition to this thread... it looks good in that colour too.
Does anybody know of any other Ravenhead glass in this colourway?  I have only seen their pieces in clear glass.
Did the seller give any reason for listing it as Dartington Frank Thrower?

Mods, thanks for changing the title... in later years we may all be glad.

Just for completeness, I decided to buy this cinnamon coloured one... (I hope you were not bidding m?) and all the bark effect matches the Ravenhead vase I have in its own box, so I feel very happy that this is Ravenhead Glass. 
I believe that Ravenhead also made a few pieces in a mid blue and pale pink...as and when I find them, I will photograph and list them here for reference.
 
Just as an aside,  I did see a bright orange one for sale on eBay and bought it with great excitement!... it turned up, well packed,  but it had been PAINTED orange! 
The seller was very good and did refund in full including the return postage!!
