Dartington FT 66. Was it made in clear or flame?
« on: October 17, 2011, 03:48:03 PM »
I have Dartington FT 66 - often called Troika - vase / candleholder in both Midnight and Kingfisher. But in several years of looking for them I have never seen this style in either clear or flame.

Has anyone ever seen one? I'm beginning to think they do not exist.....

According to Linda and Stuart Smithson (Dartington Glass the First Twenty Years) they were made in Flame too.

Thanks Anne and John.

I have the books, so know they were supposed to have been made in all four colours - just beginning not to believe it. They  must be rarer than hens teeth!

Just call me Doubting Thomas - if I haven't seen it it doesn't exist - or does that make me Jean Paul Sartre?  :-\

Would like to see a photo of Skegby's clear one if he/she is still around?

Thanks

They will be thin on the ground, they were only made between 1968 and 1970, after 1970 Dartington switched to the production of tableware only.

I have owned them in all colours including flame. Sadly I sold them just before the books came out. I will look through my old camera and see if I can dig out a photo to post.
