Bowls of non-standard sizes and shapes, finely blown, tend to be early. This little beauty has reams of lovely delicate comet-like trails of silver deposits all around.
It's also a bit wider and shallower than the standard sort of size and shape that went into production.
I do love the early bowls... 8)
Well done, Dan. :)
Cheers, Sue (M)

 :) Thank's to you both with that extra information over the moon :0
I got to admit when i clicked that link my mouth hit the deck i had never
seen such unusual pieces before especially the wuuurms charger and the
blueish shades on the other some of my favorite pieces i have seen so far
since knowing about the Depth and Beauty of glass produced at Mdina it
amazes me how things still can make the hairs stand up on your neck  :D

The "Wurrums" charger is not Mdina. That turned out to be a piece of WMF from 1928. Rocco identified it for me. ;D
