What is the diameter around the thickest part?
I've found a bit which may have been shaped in a tapering mould...
It's diameter at the thickest part is 31.5cm/12 1/2".

Cheers, Sue (M)

I'm sure we've seen this strapping on something non-Mdina but have no idea what

Roughly the diameter across the widest part of the body is 4 inches or 10cm.

Thanks for taking a look Christine, there is certainly something vaguely familiar about this piece.

I got me diameters and me perimiters muxed-ip.... but even now, had to get M to correct my perimiter into a circumference... and you don't want to see all the typos that I've had to correct just trying to say that...

Got a couple of pics!

The clear bottle has a diameter of ~ 4", circumference of 12 and an 'alf inches. That's the bit that makes me wonder about a mould. But it is the only bit I've seen (or have) with this tapered bottom.

ahh....I did wonder if you meant circumference! - The circumference of this piece around the widest part of the body is 32.5cm or 12.5 inches.

So they DO have the same dimensions of bottom parts!

(good grief - I managed the "dimension" word correctly too - are there improvements in my functioning - or am I just randomly getting it right occassionally?)

Curiouser and curiouser, so the bottoms do seem similar! Perhaps a coincidence or not..?..all very intriguing.
