Dartington Heart
« on: October 15, 2011, 02:47:04 PM »
Glass heart by Dartington - clear with texture to one side - had red Dartington sticker on it but has been washed off over years - bought late 70s early 80s - is this a Thrower design? I havn't got the Mark Hill book yet.

Thanks Adam

Pattern number FT187, so yes, Frank Thrower. Information from "Dartington Glass, The First Twenty Five Years 1967-1987" Linda and Stuart Smithson, 2007.
