New textured mdina bought today.
« on: May 12, 2019, 12:30:47 PM »
Hi members,
I bought this today and is the first one I have seen with blue strapping added to the texture,
It does have silver chloride and nitrate running through it  but hard to get in photo, The base does have the polished pontil finish.
Has any one seen this before on mdina textured vase.

Mod: Image rotated for easier viewing

Very nice example. The only other one I can recall seeing is the one shown towards the bottom of the below thread (assuming it's not the same piece!)

So, now we need to know if the all-yellow pot is the one I had once and let go, (it went to London) or if it is a different one.
If it's a different one, there is more than one. ;D

Evening sue,
If you are referring to the one in my photo it bought it many years ago from Ron wheeler who I met for the first time at Cambridge glass fair and became a member of there collecting club.
I have no idea if it could be your,s would be nice as you said.
regards Kev.

I suppose it might depend on the number of years, but it's quite likely a different one.
I'd suspect all-yellow is not a "one-off", after all. :)
