Mdina fish vase
« on: April 10, 2006, 01:45:35 PM »
Hi folks,
Could anyone tell me if this fish or axe head vase is a Mdina piece or could it be Isle of Wight please :?: . It is not signed which is a pity and would have saved me bothering you all again.  :oops:

Hello Bryn, This is latish Mdina. Obviously it's the fish design, but the colour pink puts it towards late '70's at best, more likely '80's, as does the "splodgy" pink patterning. I've got one of these, but I have to confess, only reluctantly. We call it the dog-pr*ck vase. :twisted:

Please, please, DO bother us with any Mdina or IoWSG you can find - you might come up with something new!
Cheers, Sue (M)

Long gone I'm afraid. Sorry.
