Malta Glass / Re: Mdina Glass Bottle Shape Vase

It is an unusual shape, I suspect it dates to some time after Harris left, mid to late '70s, perhaps into the '80s, but it was not continued as a shape.
I have one with Said's Chevron pattern on it.

The foot on yours looks deeper than the one illustrated, but the glass itself looks absolutely right to me. :)
Sizes were approximate, their facilities were very primitive and glass making had to accommodate the vagaries of those.

Thought some members might be interested, this company was set up in 1912 by Stevens & Williams with lighting as its speciality, petrol pump tops included, using Czech glass blowers, from what I've read ( 'The Dynasty Builder' by David Williams- Thomas ) it seems that 'Caerlon' glass was also blown there, there being Dudley Port just east of Dudley now the site of the archives, I think.
         When S&W's thought about designing studio glass they also approached George Elliot and Richard Golding, news to me  ::) good book, worth a read  ;D ;D

Ive been after this for a while (i'm sure Keith has seen it), i think it could be shape EF but the size is wrong as it's 8 1/2 inches in height, looks like there are three mould lines in the base.

Any thought's welcome regards Chris.
Malta Glass / Mdina Glass Bottle Shape Vase
« Last post by mhgcgolfclub on Yesterday at 01:07:35 PM »
I do not think there is anything special about this . It look similar to some of the decanter shape bottle vases with the large stoppers, but most of the ones I can see on the web have a flat rim.  I cannot find anything exactly the same.

Height 5.5" and weighs 930 gm.

Signed Mdina to base.

These are the Richardson examples

Your green one looks right for shape and curve and finish at the neck/top rim, the blue one not so much but  I don't know what kind of 'leeway' there would be on type of shape of finish.  Otherwise it look to be fine.
It might help if you photograph each piece individually taken side on profile so that the shape can be seen properly?

Do they both have polished pontil marks? it's very difficult to tell from your photographs.

I like my decanters and that one looks really nice. 'Cathedralesque' describes the cut nicely. I am still searching with no luck. I will hopefully stumble across (usually when looking for something completely different) an answer eventually.

Here is a pic of a cylinder decanter  Victorian Gothic cathedralesque 1845-50 similar shape 32cm in height with stopper so a but smaller.
