Hi all
ive had this goblet in my collection for quite a few years now, ive always believed it was a Mdina Goblet, and had a feeling it may have been made by Michael Harris. It hasnt shown up much in this pic but it has lots of Iridescent sheen on the outer
A chap i know through facebook saw a photo, said his friend wanted to buy it and offered a good sum which i accepted. He has know said he doesnt want it because its not Mdina.
Im still of the believe that it is a Mdina goblet. Pictured next to a standard blue goblet
Any thoughts people
many thanks
michelle

Looks right to me Michelle, in that colour and with the slightly squarer shape I would guess mid to late seventies.

I'll get a pic later, but can say that the shape of the bowl is the same as my MH signed one, and, while I think the base of mine is bigger, the knopped bit is different to both of these - it's high up like the browny one, but much bulgier.
I don't really think "standard" is a word which can be applied too well to a lot of early stuff!

It's Mdina, I'm sure, though I'd prefer to be able to see the iridesence and I can't make out the base too well in your pics.

sorry not managed to get those extra pics on yet will do as soon as i can.
Ive had an email from Ron Wheeler who agree's the goblet is definatly Mdina and goes on to say "may have been be made by Michael although chance it was made by the Boffo's around 1970 'ish"
many thanks Ron and all for your help

I thought I would add a few photos of a dated goblet  "Mdina Glass 1977" written around the edge.  It shows a less square bucket and a short stem. Hope it might help in dating bucket shapes. Cheers, Mike.
