Mdina vase for show.

Apart from the lovely colours I'd not seen this shape before so it came home with me 5.5 inches tall with the standard Mdina mark to the base,  ;D

This chevron pattern is named "Roman" and was designed by Joseph Said.
I have noticed it comes in two forms - one with the silver salt decor on the surface and the other where it is cased. This looks like a cased one and I like the cased ones much better - the colours are much more subtle and you get those lovely ochre surrounded bubbles. Has it got silver deposit trails on the outside? My favourite one does.
I have seen this shape before. Once. It just had the traditional design of a vertical streak of silver salt decor, subsequently spread around the vessel.
