Hi, any help with an attribution - an educated guess will do - greatly appreciated  :).

Has the flame pontil mark ( flame on the left hand side ).
I understand however that Kerry Glass and St John's Glass also used the flame pontil mark  - hence
my uncertainty!

It's only about 5cm high.

For what it's worth, my uneducated guess would be that it's IOWSG - based on its colours.

Thanks for looking.

Scott

IoWSG. The others didn't use silver chloride. :)
Some early IoWSG does contain teal coloured enamels that came from Mdina, the Harris family took all they owned back with them when they left Malta.

Hi Sue, many thanks for the good news  :)
I really like its colours, swirls and bubbles - so much going on, in such a small space  - amazing !

It is a very pretty one, not quite their "normal" style and showing influence/carry on from Mdina.
