I think we're all stabbing around a bit in the dark, and I don't feel so bad about my frequent mistakes now, m.  :-*

I don't see any mistakes, just helpful conversation :)

Now I have to think what names to research next.
The sliver chloride put me back on the Malta track, but that may still be the wrong track...

@Sue -- I love that light coloured Mdina cylinder vase!

I kind of like it too. I like cylinder vases.
I like your strange greenish one here, and it is bothering me.
Close-up, I can see some things I see close up in early IoWSG, a kind of look you find in the pink and blue swirls attenuated bottles. 

Could it be Australian Studio glass? There's a lot of that I don't know nearly enough about.

has anybody mentioned Phoenician?  I know it's often signed but spotted this one (different type of decor I know) and it just made me think ... not always a good thing  ;D

I had kind of dismissed Phoenician because of the dimensions - and the decor isn't really their style.
I don't have a huge amount of it, but the early bits I have, which are the ones most similar to early Mdina, show they seem to have made pieces which were rather more refined - neater and smaller, the decor also much neater, detailed and more refined. Vessels seem to be slimmer and so appear taller, or can be shorter so appear more squat.
They may also have silver deposit trails on the outside.
The dimensions of the cylinder in the link there are 18cm x 8cm. Mdina ones are ~ 20 cm x 8cm, (my shortest is 19cm).
But as much as anything, it is the cloudy, abstract decor rather than Phoenician's more normal neat, dainty and refined style.
I know what I mean to say... I just hope it's comprehensible. ::)

I know what you mean Sue.  Just thought I'd mention it again because it popped in to my mind.  I checked it out and saw that one so thought it was worth an ask  ;D
