I don't know that much about this type of glass but it looks similar to me.

Malta Glass / Re: C.1968 Early Mdina Trial/ Experimental Vase

Except, of course, Timothy was a child at the time he believes this to have been made and the Alum Bay person who ID'd it was an adult working at Alum Glass when he believed this was made by Michael Raynor. The glass looks very clear, i.e., not bluish, for early Mdina too

I remain to be convinced, this is unlike any other piece of Mdina, early or otherwise, the squat shape and rim are unlike every single early globe vase from Mdina I have seen. I have one very early item with a kicked up base but it has a disc of glass covering the scar.

We have two glass makers offering an opinion, one Colin Green said "I remember making these in the late eighties, but I think yours is mid seventies". Tim Harris was a young child in 1969 (little or no glass was actually produced at Mdina in 1968), by the sound of it he jumped to a conclusion with little consideration.

It looks the same to me (but I'm not always the best at comparisons) but something is only worth what someone is prepared to pay on the day. I don't know whether the attribution is correct either

Glass / Unmarked Amber 10inch Vase Forest Theme ?
« Last post by Kamloops on Today at 03:13:21 AM »
I have this vase that has been in my family for years and I am trying to figure out if it has any value and what it is. I found one that looks the same that sold at auction for 800.00 here https://new.liveauctioneers.com/item/22936634_10-unmarked-barolac-czech-solid-amber-art-glass-vase#&gid=1&pid=2

Is this the same as what I have and is it really worth 800 dollars?

Thanks in advance for any help.
