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.
