Vases & Bowls
The Dartington Wibble range of vases and bowls is a whimsical collection with a fantastic shape! Each item of the collection is hand made using high quality crystal, the vases and bowls all work wonderfully as stand-alone statement pieces or as part of a collection. The range includes several different sized bowls and a great set of different vases in a few different sizes and shapes to suit a variety of uses. The Dartington Daisy range is hand made in the UK and is an original Frank Thrower design which was brought out of retirement a few years ago due to increased public demand. The pieces are made from high performance crystal which is given a textured finish and its distinctive floral design. There are 3 sizes of bowl in the range and a large platter. The small pair of dishes are perfect for serving desserts or snacks in, and the medium bowl would make an excellent trifle bowl or serving bowl. The large bowl is as versatile as it is beautiful, and the large platter is ideal for serving hot or cold buffet food.
Dartington vases, bowls and other items are all boxed and packaged well with foam padding. We check each vase or bowl before dispatch, however if any of your items arrive in less-than-perfect condition please contact our customer services department and we can arrange for replacement items to be sent out to you as quickly as possible.
Care Guidelines For Your Crystal Vases and Bowls
Wash your glassware before use.
When washing glassware use warm soapy water and a lint-free cloth.
Rinse glassware with clear warm water.
Dartington Crystal can be used in the dishwasher if handled with care and using a low temperature washing cycle.
Dry with a soft cloth holding glasses by the bowl not the stem.
Avoid twisting the stems of your glassware during washing and drying.
If staining appears on any of your glassware, it can be removed with vinegar on a soft cloth, or soak in a solution of vinegar and water (50/50).
A mild abrasive such as rice or crushed eggshells can be used inside containers. Stand or store crystal stemware right side up to avoid damage to stemware rims.
Expose glassware to rapid temperature changes, e.g. very hot oven or cold water.
Use glassware products in microwave or conventional oven or in a freezer.
Never stack one glass inside another.
Since 1967, Dartington has created inspired choices in crystal and glass for the home and to give as a gift. Many original Dartington glass makers were brought to Devon from Sweden, so it is no surprise that Dartington glass and crystal has an elegant, clean design style. It is Dartington's aim to make glassware that is admired but also used and enjoyed for many years. Today, Dartington is the only crystal factory remaining in the UK, and their crystal collection continues to be hand made at the Torrington factory (well worth a visit if you can!), set in the rolling hills of North Devon. Dartington also offers hand made glassware collections which are designed in England and crafted to high standards by Polish or Slovakian manufacturers. Value for money and superior durability are also provided by selected machine made drinkware in lead free crystal.
