Mdina Tricorn Bottle
« on: June 08, 2017, 12:44:17 PM »
Very pleased with today's purchase. I'm guessing the remains of the oval label will have been a price ticket. This is 13.75ins tall.

This also has the Made in Malta label with a hand written MR/1 code on it.

Great find, not that many of them around.

Would agree the oval label probably for price at some time, saying that, also wondering if it might be from an outlet selling glass in Valletta - have we seen oval labels marked Valletta before?

I hadn't noticed that,  :-[ it looks as if it might be Michael Harris' writing.

oooh....
It's hard to tell because it blows up very big, and starts to look a bit more Marie-like, but I think it might well be Michael Harris' writing.
I think of you every time I look at my bottle now, Alastair.

There are at least two of these in Dundee, maybe we should have won the city of culture thingy, if only they'd known about us. ;D
