Dartington FT 208 (green)
« on: July 06, 2014, 05:42:17 PM »
I've had this knocking around for a while now and decided to stick it online. In researching it I have only come across clear versions!

Did they Make It in green?

Or do I have something made by someone else?

The sizes seem to match the Dartington one.

Many thanks - Adam

That is interesting, not seen one either. Presumably it dates from around 1994 when Dartington reproduced a few of their designs in recycled glass. This Recycled Crystal range was made with colours not otherwise found, like these two Marguerite vases.

Is there a very small etched D on the base of the Daisy weight?

Thanks John,

No, no mark underneath. Quite a bit of wear though.

An indication of the base wear:
