I don't remember seeing that design before, that, the colour and the etched Dartington makes me think it's fairly modern.

You could contact them and ask if no one else can help: http://www.dartington.co.uk/about/visitors-centre/

Good to see Dartington customer relations are doing their job well, I think they have answered several questions promptly from members of this board.

I'll be keeping an eye out for one of those bowls too. ;D

Hi Kaz, good on you for getting this info! Just checking, do you mean #BD836/GR, or is there a special meaning for the ":"?

Ta Kaz, I can do the title now - since stupid assumptions are worse than stupid questions I thought I'd better ask!  :24:
