I think the tortoiseshell bottle makes a lovely vase!

A couple of damaged attenuated bottles have sold on ebay in the past few months. One had a neck that was glued back together, it looked a bit rough from the photos but Seaward bottles are genuinely rare and whoever bought it is probably quite happy with it. It may turn out to be the only example they ever get the chance to buy. I have one, I know of two others in collections. The damaged one on ebay is the only example I have ever seen for sale online.

Hello folks, any suggestions as to the origins of this bottle shaped clear cased vase?
It's 13" tall x 2 3/4" diameter with a slightly irregular blown form, and is heavy at nearly 1.4kg.
The base is flat and smooth, with age wear. Unsigned. Thanks...

Info from Davee: 100% Mdina, the colouring is commonly known as 'Tiger'

There was a choice between this one, or a tall version with the same colours.
Seller thought it might be Mdina.
No inscribed mark. Base polished flat. Some wear. Rim is a bit wonky.

Cheers. Most Excellent
The tall one was the same shape as that ebay one. It had a couple of large bubbles in the base, and this one has it's wonky rim, so I suspect that's why they weren't signed.

Definitely Mdina, it appears it was quite a short lived decor, mid to late 70s probably. A friend has a couple of signed examples.

A lot of Mdina isn't signed. It was a time issue, not a wonkiness issue

I believe it's from The Earth Range designed by Michael Harris in 1972. So a 70s date, I assume.

Post by RVsaid on January 14th 2015, 11:39 am

Hi

I saw this and thought ay ay IOW, then I saw the base and thought maybe Mdina and now I'm thinking maybe even a modern import. the rim is irregular with a bulge and the base is flat cut but with a rough indented broken pontil mark. Any thoughts?

Mdina and Earthtones is spot on, with this shape mid to late 1970s would be my bet.

Mdina (Malta) - Page 4 Empty Signed Mdina. label: Valletta, Malta

Post by lindylou08 on May 6th 2015, 11:40 am

Hi
Have just found this. Not the most exciting colourway ! It came with a stopper but not convinced its right.

Vase part has white 'swirls' and is overlaid with clear strapping. The stopper has a pale blue appearance hence the idea that it doesn't belong.

Signed MDINA but the label is worn and can only identify the words VALLETTA- MALTA. I would like to be able to date it
