Lots of Maltese glass from Mdina - from various ranges and dates - some Michael Harris designed early pieces included.

It's by Mdina (Malta) a textured vase circa 1970 ish so an early piece of theirs (could even be late 60s when Michael Harris was still there but I'd have to double check that). Certainly the polished pontil is an early indicator for Mdina - more often they've got just flat polished bases with a Mdina signature. These blues & yellows are fairly typical for Mdina and said to have been inspired by the Mediterranean.

Very nice!

The yellow is silver chloride salts, which cause various colour effects in combination with different coloured glass and iridescence if at the surface

Mdina (Malta) Empty Mdina - unusual bit?

Post by skay on October 18th 2010, 7:27 pm

I bought this the other day and was surprised to see the streak of the Mdina blue / yellow in this vase. †Is it unusual?

Info from Christine: †The yellow is silver chloride and if there is an iridescent streak on the outside, that's where the silver chloride has escaped to the surface
