Oh yes, very nice early design from Mr Thrower, looks good in midnight.  8)

They were not made for long, not sure how long long is but suspect 6 months to a year or so. To add a little confusion, FT2 was then used as the pattern number for the paperweights that matched the various FT1 commemorative tankards. :P

Info, as usual, from Dartington Glass the First Twenty Years by Linda & Stuart Smithson.
