I will second that, a very useful book, I would like to claim the above info was from memory but it was really taken from the First Twenty Years. Also used it to ID a FT66 vase on Sunday, they were only made for two years so probably a bit harder to find than some.

Have placed my order for the book, can't have a much higher recommendation than you guys!


Am I being dim Christine but what is "unstruck flame"? :-[

The colour in Dartington's flame red glass was produced (I'm a bit shaky on the details) by taking the blown item back to the glory hole so that more heat could be applied. A reaction within the glass produces the colour and the more heat the darker the colour can be. This is why there can be a lot of variation in the colour of flame red items from Dartington.

So I would guess unstruck means that this extra heat was not applied after blowing and the resulting colour of the glass is amber and rare. :mrgreen:

Wa-hey!

I found this little 5½" Wedgewood vase today.  Here it is drying next to a piece of German (not even West German) pottery... which I collect because "rifle range" pottery seems popular in my neck of the woods, and I always think it's better to diversify than get bored.

ANYWAYS....I digress....

This here vase has a sticker declaring "Wedgewood Devon Collection" but I don't have any books apart from Miller's and they are quite...erm... and wondered if anyone knows who designed it, what it's called, etc.....?  You just need to stand on your heads to look at it properly...  I'm sure the upside-down thing will not make it any trickier for you clever people.

This Wedgewood and Dartington stuff gets me going enough to say that I will never sell any of it, so this one is a keeper!

TIA and BIG LOVE ON YA!

Hi Stu & Emma,

Can just make out from the 1984 Canadian Devon Collection Poster in the back of that book.....

EITHER:-
Devon Posy vase Ref 211/8510  Height 6.5"/165mm  OR
Devon floral vase Ref 209/8510 height 8.25"/220mm

This collection was also aimed at the US, Canadian and other foreign markets. Handmade in 24% English lead crystal and designed by FT.

All the above gleamed from that book.

PS. The one Christine told us about- L. Smithson, "The First Twenty Years" is for sale on Ebay 170387258826, should you be vaguely interesested.

Yoo-hoo!

Thanks Sharron.  That's exactly what I wanted to hear, of course.  What a perfect attribution that was!

I've gone FT mad - it's official.  Once they're on the shelf, they look so fab.

Hope you had a great day today.

:)

Some of us are *really* clever - we can flip the house so the glass is the right way up!  ;)

BTW did you know the Ming comes in ribbed and unribbed?
