Ach - what do you want with one of these common things, John.  :24:
I though you were only into far more exclusive, one-off Michael Harris pieces!

Just a test on resizing using Picasa.
(I have just found and won a lovely verdala bowl in this colour on fleabay, pictures to follow- wrongly described, anyone see it? )

Well done, didn't see that one for sale. Were you the only bidder..?

Look forward to the pictures.

Yep - I saw it, very nearly bid too LOL.  It's not a verdala shape though, this is a bowl with an inverted rim, less common and not often seen for sale.  I have one in amethyst and I know another forum member has one in an early tiger pattern.  There is a version in the Mdina/IOW book page 28.  Would love to see some pics once you've got it.

Hi Suzy / Andy,

Speaking of these bowls, I purchased one the other day which I wasn't completely sure about as the photo quality was very poor.

Attached a few photos, again it has an inverted rim. Looking at the bowl since it arrived, am I right in saying this is the more modern Tiger pattern. It is marked Mdina to the base and something like '01' would this be the date for this particular piece..?

Whilst, much later than its companion in the last photo, is this shape still relatively uncommon even at a later date..?

Good to see a few pics of your bowl Andy.

Thanks,
Greg

Hi Andy,

I bought it on the 12th of this month on ebay. The seller was a business seller, called the 'The Used Company' they had it for sale as a 'Buy It Now' of £9.99, although the photo was terrible. Looking at their details I think their based in Alfreton Derbyshire...?

Do you think its the same bowl...? - I presume yours was marked '01'..?

Thanks,
Greg

The modern version of Tiger is called Marble and is still produced.  I don't follow modern Mdina so couldn't say whether they are common or not, the earlier Tiger bowl of yours Greg is gorgeous, I certainly would have bid had it not disappeared so quickly.
