Not a clue regarding the maker of this piece, it has a raised reptile skin effect finish and the photos do not do it justice in any way. Somebody said to look at Dartington Studio but so far I cannot find any resource or info about themir production etc. The base also has the reptile skin effect and three, what look like stilt marks

Is it correct certain coloured labels meant seconds. I know of the red, black and gold labels. What do they signify on the Dartington glass?

The seller advertised it as Riihimäen Lasi but I couldn't find similar example anywhere. 23 cm tall and quite well made, moulded piece.

Rediscovered in my loft is this two boxed pairs of handmade Dartington Irish Coffee glasses designed by Frank Thrower, mid 1970s and possibly promotional items for Bushmills Irish whiskey. Production/design code FT83.
I've included a shot of the back of one of the boxes to include the recipe just in case anybody fancies a wee snifter. You'll have to provide your own ingredients though. Sorry about that  Shrugs
