Gosh - I see what you mean.. almost the same shape.. even the way the tails are worked.. It's not the same person working for both companies? I have no idea, but teh shape is almost identical.. Lovely colour blue btw..

It's the internal colouring that's the giveaway I think though...

Yes I agree Steve about the internal colouring of yours being typically Mdina but now I come to think about it the blue of mine is also a VERY typical Mdina colour (I recently sold a Mdina swan in the exact same colour) - this one is etched Wedgwood to the base but I'm beginning to have doubts that the etching is kosher now!

 ??? confused!!!!!

Gosh - well done Lynne and David - I've got loads of Mdina vases but I've never handled any of their birdies - below is a photo of one of my Wedgwood birds so you can see how very similar the shape is - why would the two companies make birds so similar   ???

I guess it is just a very easy shape, little long blob, pinch the nose, pull the tail... and bob's your uncle.
