A super pair of retro Dartington Sillabub glasses, designed by Frank Thrower. Each glass is 10cm tall, about 6.6cm wide max, and an elegant flaring shape on a base (around 125ml). They're perfect for small desserts, jellies, sorbets, creams and zabaglione - as well as just for drinking from! The design dates from the 1970s. Handmade, made in Dartington, England. Original retro box with recipe to the reverse - in very good condition considering the age. Comes with a care leaflet too, suggesting the glasses were not taken out of their box very often, possibly never used. The gold stickers indicate they were 1st class, rather than seconds. Excellent collectable boxed examples - hardly used. High quality lead crystal, being handmade one glass is thicker than the other. No, I didn't know what a sillabub was either - sounds very retro 1970s dinner party! Includes P&P to the UK.
