Recently purchased these two Mdina ink pots and had a couple of questions about the stoppers.
The bottle in the first picture, is I believe early in date, however, the stopper appears much later and therefore not the best match. Then looking at the second bottle, this appears to be a bit later although perhaps has an earlier stopper, although not completely sure.
In essence, I was thinking of swapping the stoppers over, which seem to match more in terms of colour. However, when swapping, the stoppers, rather annoyingly don't fit.
The stoppers are different in size and length. Is there any uniformity in regards to Mdina stoppers for these ink pots..? I was wondering if all of the stoppers should have narrow necks and if my later more vivid blue stopper with a fatter neck has come from a cylindrical decanter or something else...?
Thanks form your thoughts.
