No.
The stripey pattern looks a little like the stripey pattern used on the Onion vases, it's shaped as an uncut Mdina cut-ice Lollipop, so they're still using MH designs and variations on them.
Uncut "Cut-ice Lollipops" are not unusual.  ;D

 8) Although you posted an image of a bud vase by Jim Munnelly, made after he left Mdina.
I did wonder if that shape might have been his (Jim's) own design, rather than one of MH's?
It's the round-bottomed, long-necked shape with flared rim, used a great deal over a long period of time at Mdina.
Cheers, Sue (M)

It had not occurred to me before but now you come to mention it, it does look more MDG than Mdina.

Hi,
 In a moment of weakness I bought it via a dealer that was standing at the same fair........ I have tried to justify buying because it will display well with the other I have.   
 Note to self.............. I collect Whitefriars not MDG !  :)

Regards,

          Patrick.

Hi,
 Well it has been very quiet on here so I thought I would add an image of the two MDG lollipop vases......  The thinner topped one that Wolfie found me has a melted in neck, maybe this has sealed the blowers breath in ...............

Regards,
                Patrick.

Me too, it looks much better in Patrick's well lit photo than it did in the flesh - on the sellers stand in a dark old shed.
