Elongated square textured vase for id
« on: January 24, 2011, 08:08:30 PM »
Any clues on this one for me?

It's 140 mm tall, textured on the outside with an asymmetrical inner cavity. The rim is nicely bevelled on the inside and it has a nice feel about it ~Adam

It's a Dartington textured flower box: the FT194. Made from 1975 to 1980. Designed by Frank Thrower.

Thanks Lustrousstone, perhaps one I should have recognised by now - but not  :-[

I don't know that they pop up that often. I've never knowingly seen one.

I am still looking for the third shape and the matching candle holder, it's just I am too tight to pay the postage costs when they crop up now and again on ebay.

Which is the one I keep my garlic in, John?
It's one of those, but shorter - just under 4" tall.

I have had just had a look in the book (Dartington Glass The first Twenty Years) and there are five (not 4) items with this fine stippled texture. Four 'textured flower boxes' (or vases ;D) FT191/2/3/4 and the textured candleholder FT195.
Sue, I think yours is square if I remember correctly and so at that height will be FT192, FT191 is wider than it is deep and is more of a 'trough'. FT195, the candleholder is the same basic shape as this bunch but smaller in size and with the same textured as the flower boxes.

It's a square-ish rectangle, John -  a bit taller than it is wide.
(something to which I aspire as well!)
It's definitely a garlic holder, not a candleholder.
