Really just for info, and to document on the GMB, talking to Ron Wheeler about this pattern at Birmingham, he was surprised at how many different shapes there were in this pattern. One of my favourites, its all a bit thicker and heavier than a lot of Mdina.

I have 12 different shapes/sizes. Unfortunately, in Sept.2008 there was a very large signed Fish vase in the pattern, just as i was going into hospital, couldnt be next to computer to 'snipe' so i left a bid of £250, and was outbid at the last 10 seconds  :cry:
This fish vase was signed and dated 1981. As many of mine have early stickers, and good age wear, i believe this range is a little earlier than Mark Hills estimate in his book (late 80s-90s) and is actually late 70s, early 80s.

Id be interested if anyone has a different shape ? signatures or dates. or a name of the pattern and designer?
I will send the photos and this link to Ron at Artius, and Mark Hill, and let them use photos if required.

Cheers all,
Andy
