There is an 'older style' label here on a 1978 dated vase, you have to scroll down past the Sam Herman vase (if possible  ;) )

Newer style of label dated 1984 .....if my theory is correct (& it's only a theory ) the change in the paper label design took place between 1982 and 1984 . If anyone can find labels (of whichever design ) on dated and signed pieces close to these dates then please post links here , Cheers, Mike.

Looking at the photos there isn't a clear date 1984 shown in the photo of the base so it could be a false lead  :o

Having looked at lots of labels , I now think the transition between the older label and the newer design happened in 1985 which was the year Mr Said bought Mdina , but please correct me if I'm wrong. Please see two dated examples 1985 one with the older style of label the other with the newer design.
