Mdina Globe vase show and tell
« on: December 26, 2014, 03:57:16 PM »
Bought this large globe vase a few weeks ago, it is thick, chunky and 15cm tall (6"). The new arrival has condemned another globe but I have found a home to take the orphan in...

Very unusual and rather lovely-ly wonky around the top.  :)
 
Which one has been condemned?

The condemnee is not in that group, it is this one: https://picasaweb.google.com/Johnmj100/EarlyMdinaGlass#5686671087394098066

Have I been too harsh?

Hard to tell, each has it's own merits.
While I like the wonkiness of the new rim - it looks as if it might be flying off somewhere; I like the bubbles in the "condemned" one, and the less wonky rim, it is charmingly chunky and more stable-looking.
That's the trouble with Mdina. Every bit is unique.

All part of the charm for me. I am trying to keep variety in the collection, the other two greeny blue globes were roughly the same size and the new one is a bit bigger with some nice blue swirly bits.
