But no suggestions as to what any of those others might be - that was my problem, John. I keep forgetting the names of makes which can be similar.
There does appear to be a coating of iridesence on it, is it really there, Greg?

No, no other suggestions at the moment.

It can be difficult when you can't handle an item.

Thanks both for your thoughts.  :)

I'm sure the iridescence is Silver Chloride, there's no coating present. I have attached a handful of additional pictures I took the other day, one with flash to pick out the iridescence. Hope these help.

Do the colours resemble anything going on in this Mdina bottle/decanter without silver chloride.....or  is the colour all silver chloride ? I didn't know IOWSG did polished pontil marks , are there any examples of this ? Also , there seems to be lots of age to the base which is very unusual ! :)  Ta, Mike

P.S. Here is a link to my only early WMF piece , has a definite green tinge to the glass and the blue colour is confined to the base area (mostly) and quite a bit of age to the base.............(not as much as yours though ! )......only blue and silver chloride combo..

It was the pinky-purple sort of iridescent colour I saw that was confusing me. It could just be a trick of the light.
The new pics do show the silver deposits on the outside, and they do look rather IoW-ish, cometty sort of trails...
But I wouldn't go ruling WMF  It is difficult when you can't cop a feel!
Thanks for tracking that thread down, Mike - there's a link to the vase mhcgolfclub had in that one, so very easy for me to find. ;)

It has similarities to this http://lustrousstone.co.uk/cpg/displayimage.php?pid=1732
Not the best picture and can't remember what the base is like, but the only colorant is silver chloride

- not all that uncommon for Mdina, I have a couple of bits like that (will be able to add a couple of photos later).

I have to retract my 'geen tinge' /tint comment .....none , just a play with the light from the blue in the base area  ::)

Your stoppered bottle uses yellow and orange coloured enamels Mike, no silver salts in this design (unless some get in by accident/cross contamination).
