Designed by Frank Thrower in 1971 Dartington Crystal Sharon Claret glasses are an iconic shaped glass that are as contemporary today as they were more than 40 years ago.
My view is that although they are called a Claret glass these glasses are a bit small for red wine and are more suitable as a white or rose wine glass.These Sharon glasses are hand made in the Dartington Glass Factory in Torrington Devon.
The 24% Lead Crystal gives the glass a beautiful clarity. Each Sharon glass has a mouth blown teardrop bubble at the top of the stem giving each wine glass individual character as there is always a slight variance in size and positioning of the bubble, this is not considered a fault but testimony of a hand made product. We will pair glasses to match as closely as possible.
I lik the shape of these very much. The four I have just bought are lighter than the three I still have from the set bought 24 years ago. I can't work out whether that's because the originals were second-quality and thicker, or whether the shape has slightly changed (deeper bowl, less glass in the stem).
Had used this website before and was impressed with service as very quick to deliver and goods in perfect condition . When I ordered again my order seemed to be taking a little longer than I hoped as these were for a wedding present . No problem, one phone enquiry and Jeff the courier was on my doorstep the very next day with my goods . So service very good and would definitely use again . Many thanks and now all wrapped up to be given away as a wedding present .
excellent service - very pleased. Thank you
