Dartington Crystal, the leading UK name in contemporary crystal and glass was first established in 1967 in Torrington, North Devon as a manufacturer of quality products for home use. Over more than 50 years Dartington has developed and evolved many ranges of crystal and glassware based on its key skills of design and glass-making. Many of their early designs (from the 1960’s and 70’s) remain as best sellers – a testament to their timeless appeal.
Today Dartington are proud to be the only remaining large scale producer of crystal and glass in the UK. Dartingtons’ 24% lead-crystal product is hand-made made in their Devon factory, while the Company designs and sources other non-lead glassware from selected European suppliers. With a clean and simple design style, every piece of Dartington is made to be used and enjoyed. The collection features functional gifts, table-top and drinkware. This wide selection provides great inspiration for any gift occasion and special celebration. For your own home or as a gift, the choice of Dartington will always be appreciated and admired.
In addition to crystal and glass products, Dartington Crystal owns and markets the world renowned Caithness Glass and Royal Brierley Crystal brands. Dartington also supplies ceramic gifts and animal studies under the John Beswick brand, enabling them to offer customers a wide choice of products and design styles from the very best British names.
