Strapped Vase i.d Czech? Mdina?

Strapped Vase i.d Czech? Mdina?

A heavy vase with strap design, not signed, similar to Mdina vase I've seen, but maybe a Czech design also. It has a highly polished base, cased with a hint of plum. Vase is 19cm tall with 11cm rim on 7cm base, weight of near 1kg. Any ideas please, thanks in advance   Simon

Hi Simon, Yes, later Mdina production, 1980s or so I would guess, not sure when this design was phased out if it all. Sure someone will confirm an accurate time frame. Hope this helps a little.  :)

Yup, mid-late'80s Mdina, comes in frosted as well as clear.
