Design history: the ‘Sharon’ Crystal Wine Goblet by Frank Thrower for Dartington, now in the V&A: Pair of glasses
This exceptional crystal wine glass is a part of British design history. It was designed by the legendary Frank Thrower, creator and chief designer at Dartington Crystal, who in the space of 10 years in the 1980s was largely responsible for what The Times described as a revolution in British glass design. In 1985 his ‘Sharon’ champagne flute was included in the V&A exhibition ‘100 Best Ever Products’ and the striking wine goblet pictured, still mouth-blown and totally craftsman made in England, remains on public show at the V&A.
