I think I will stick to the early never seen before Mdina maybe made by Michael Harris. ;)

Thanks again for the info and knowledge.

I don't think there is any reason to think MH made it.
My guts suspect MDG managed a flat base.
But I'm open to more evidence. :)
Mdina is still full of surprises, even after 22 years of it.

Heres a couple of photos; The experimental Green Tricorn bowl, bought from Artius a couple of years back, made by Michael. Also my sterotypically coloured button top sidestripe (IMO) also by Michael.

Just to clarify what I mentioned about button tops earlier, it's true that it was indeed Michael's preferred finish earlier on. But however the presence of it doesn't necessarily mean he made it. Michael was after all teaching many of his employees how to make what we wanted, so it's only natural there be perhaps less well executed button tops that are by them and not Michael himself.

If I had to give my oppinion on the green sidestripe I would have said it wasn't by him. It's not as well executed as the one I've shown which leads me to believe he didn't made it. Lovely however, nonetheless.

Thanks for showing the tricorn. Is it signed?

This is my "half-green" pulled ears vase. Like John's, the green emerges from the mix of colours.

Hi John, it's 11.5 cm tall and wide. A little smaller than this one.

Hi Sue, not entirely sure, to my knowledge the answer is no, but when you look at this base wear its hard to tell if there is anything there or not  ;D

This one is 10cm, everything about Andy's vase strikes me as Mdina. The only variation (very nice I would give it a home kind of variation) is it looks so green.

Can't think of a sidestripe from MDG and so far have only seen their green along with a distinct pattern.
