Thenks, Patrick - it was very difficult to read.
(I need my eyes tested, they're 3 years out of date. Not one of my 4 pairs of glasses were good enough for me to cope.).

Green still wasn't used in the early period, so that is one thing we can happily say is complete twaddle.

(Unless it's the few folk who think that the teal colour is green, but that might be because they're a bit colour blind.)

I didn't manage to read the word "green" in the article, when describing the colours used - and green wasn't used at Mdina until the mid-'70s, after Said took over.

Maybe this is where Mark got the idea of green being used from, rather than the finding of bits of MDG and assuming they were Mdina?

It's good to have this precis. Many thanks to the writer!


Hi Sue,
I agree it is hard to read the original but Green is mentioned........ See below.

these would appear to be made with a deliberate antique look - maybe with tourists in mind, and in the mistaken belief that all old glass should look misshapen and full of bubbles.             I think Egypt was the other suggestion made when I posted mine. 
Although the shape is similar to C18 and C19 jelly glasses, these might simply represent a small drinking glass of some description.

very nice shape! 
that looks a bit like a Mdina squat vase (obviously  not as 'organic' and a different rim but you know what I mean)

BUT; we should always add the caveat that the "information" found in newspaper articles is not neccessarily true nor accurate. They are hastily written, with a view to telling a story that will sell, rather than to impart knowledge.
