It has a very Dartington feel to me, with that thick base.  I had a look at the catalogues on whitefriar.org (they're listed in the Whitefriars Catalogues section) but couldn't find it, although I don't think they're comprehensive.   :)

Thanks guys
Now you mention it, it does look rather Dartington.
I hadn't even considered Whitefriars Max ...I think thats doubtful but thanks for looking.
It still baffles me how undesirable Dartington is deemed to be.

There's no signature on the candle Marcus  :D
I only assume its the original candle as it came with the piece and I have never seen another candle like it.

Noooo!  That's not what I meant.  :lol:  There are Dartington catalogues listed on www.whitefriars.org.  

Sign in, go to Whitefriars Catalogues, and some Dartington ones are displayed there.  :roll:  :wink:  :D
