Sue, did you check through the Dartington catalogues on whitefriars.org?

Hi Anne, yes, but i am afraid they are'nt very clear, what i need are some clear image's of all four sides, size and colours ect, a freind has offered me one but i want to make sure i pay her a fair price.
I have handled it and i am sure it is genuine, but i have read that some were made after the 1980's.

Hi Anne, you replied while i was typing, they are brill thanks very much, i am now certain they are one and the same FT 65, i have'nt seen very many of these, in fact i can only remember seening one other, but that is no indecation of age and rarity

It's described as a hyacinth vase and was made in clear, midnight, kingfisher and flame. Made for two years, 1968-1970. Mark Hill cites them as rarer.

Some of the designs have been revisited Sue but not this one as far as I know.
