"Cut Ice" fish vase with polished facets

hard to read......signed:
Mdina Glass
Malta
followed by an unreadable signature which looks like Dopson's

The signature will be Eric Dobson, who was Michael Harris's business partner and owner of Mdina glass after Harris returned to England.

I am hoping this is an Early example of Mdina it is 15 inch tall 2 or 3 lbs in weight, beautiful colours where the ingrediants have oxidesed during making and it is triangular in shape.

How is the base finished? and is it marked? these are usually good indicators of the age.

Hi Davee, just a polished base not signed but I have other Mdina and the colours and technique is similar. I know a lot of the Early Mdina was not signed by Michael Harris and that he did make some triangular vases and bowls called "Tricorn" and only he was skilled enough to make them.

I do believe believe it is very early Mdina due to that the way that the top of the vase is finished as a button instead of being flared out like a plate as the vases were after Harris left or got forced out of Malta to start Isle of White glass.
Leaving Dobson and Joseph Said along with some Glass blowers from Murano to run the Mdina glassworks.
I am hoping someone can give a positive ID. Thanks Kev

This is an Mdina vase but unsigned, the glass in this one is a lower quality as you can see seeds in it if you look closely. I have a few mdina pieces and the glass quality is better in all but one of the others as they are all signed early seventies I wonder if it was one of the very early vases when Michael Harris couldnt get the highest quality of glass. Does anybody have any ideas, Kev

You obviously have all the info you need already, but from all the attributes you describe I would say that, yes it is a Harris period bottle. The reason I asked about the base was because some of the early pieces have a concave ground and polished pontil which indicates that they were definately made during that early period.

On a hunch I don't think its Harris period, but probably mid to late 70's. But I could be wrong Shrugs
