The cylinder above is Mdina, decorated only with various silver chloride effects. Quite a stunner, but my pic is bad. :-[

A lovely example Sue.  :) - I guess generally speaking these would be fairly early..?- How is the base finished on your cylinder out of curiosity?

It is an early one, I suspect Boffo, because of the grid-pattern of silver deposit on it, and the base is one of the small, slightly raised ones. It's polished flat and about 1.5" in diameter. These slightly raised bases, rather than just plain flat bases, are all early-ish. No marks written on it.
