This Dartington Crystal Decanter was picked up for a bargain price of £1. ????
Designed by Frank Thrower in the 1960s for Dartington Crystal & was one of the most popular til it' was discontinued in the 1980s..
It's 26.2cm high & holds 80cl.
The body of the decanter is short & cylindrical in section, with thickened base.This has a central polished pontil . The body tapers in at the shoulder to form a narrow cylindrical neck. The rim is reverted & flat.
The stopper is of solid form with flattened discoid apex . The peg of the stopper & neck of the decanter are ground to allow close fitting.
It doesn't look like it's ever been used & cost close to £100.00 when bought !
Still has original sticker . it's in close to new condition & I think a very cool shape .
Hope you like it ????
