Andy, actually on reflection the colours and pattern is very different from the signed Mdina pieces I had ... here's one of them:-

I hadn't noticed the very definite patterning on yours and the eBay one.  I'm inclined to think David might be right with Mtarfa - hopefully one of the Mdina 'experts' will be along to take a look at this thread.

Andy, Pip and everyone,
The patterning reminds me of that J Wall stuff.

Hi there,
Literally just found this thread. I'm pretty sure this is late 1970s-80s Mdina, from the Earthtones range produced after Michael left. I'm pretty sure I've seen this shape before, but it isn't common as you correctly say Pip & Andy. I have a catalogue from that period at home in my archive, but I'm not at home right now, so can't check it. So until then, I'll say I'm 95% sure it's Mdina as described.
Hope this helps,
Mark

Thanks Mark,
Im sure ive seen one ages ago signed Mdina, colours are unusual, did you click on the ebay link

Was it in your catalogue? Im sure its 70s sometime.
Regards Andy
