description

A vintage triangular glass candle holder from the Dartington glass studio. Hand made mould blown glass from the designer Frank Thrower. The candle holder has its original sticker and the candle holder is in excellent condition.

Established 1966 as Dartington Glass, re-named 1987. Frank Thrower, whom previously worked in Sweden. Frank Thrower (1932-87) is Britain's most successful glass designer of the post-war era. Thrower, who created 95 per cent of its ranges until 1987, was a charismatic character, and every one of his plain, classic postwar Scandinavian-influenced designs was made by hand. Some consider Dartington, Britain's sole remaining major glassmaker, to have been, at its peak, on a par with the Swedish Orrefors, the 20th century's most influential glassworks.
