I couldn't state categorically that it was made by Michael Harris, and could not claim that it was if I were selling it, but personally I'd becomfortable believing that it is, if it was mine.  8) 8) 8)

Hi thanks for the new reply 😀 Admittedly, my knowledge is non existent about which glass master has/had what technical ability at Mdina or IOWSG, but I'm still very pleased that technically, this is good enough to have possibly been made by Micheal Harris or made by someone whose skills in these particular techniques possibly matched his 😃😃😃
I'm taking this to the 2 IOW glass stands or the Mdina/IOWSG stands that are at the glass fair if I can go. 😀 Will let you know the outcome unless someone else from IOWSG happens to see this post, I think seeing it will make so much difference, and although I've tried my best with the photos, they are a long way from perfect.
Thank you both so much for your help 😀

I'm sure Ron Wheeler (Artiusglass) will be interested to see it.
And Anton, of the IoWSG Museum.  :)
I won't be there.
Cheers, Sue (M)

If one ignores the "wings" on the stem the shape seems very similar to my Mdina goblet.

Hi I thought that I would do an update on this piece as I went to the glass fair to talk to IoWSG museum or the other stall the studio had in spring and Artius glass .... neither were there ...  ;D I showed it to a number of dealers who had a collections of IOWSG on their stands, who all thought it was aurene or blue aurene, a number said they thought it was experimental, and this was a rare and early piece from the 70's and most said it was a lovely item, and shame it wasn't signed. I also showed it to Jonathan Harris who confirmed it as an early aurene chalice with every possibility that his dad made it, he confirmed his dad often never signed things as his best work would be made tomorrow  ;D He also commented that he remembered his mum used to put green florist oasis in it for flower arrangements  ;D
Thanks for all your help

I'm very pleased to hear Jonathon agrees with us; and not at all surprised to hear about Elizabeth putting flowers and oasis in them. ;)
(I'll get my coat...)
