Very early ones too, using up the last of the colours brought back from Malta - thus the teal shade rather than cobalt.
The shapes found in this unusual colourway are these stoppered bottles (in different heights), cylinders (also in different heights and widths) and small six-sided pots.

2 Isle of Wight Glass stoppered bottles which are known as strapped Aurene for show.

They are about 15cm in height and weigh 500gm and 550gm.
Please feel free to use the pictures.

Thanks Roy

could it be IOW, Isle of Wight.

When it is signed, Isle of Wight Studio Glass usually includes the designer/makers name, something along the lines of "Timothy Harris Isle of Wight England".

The shape of this fish is right for Mtarfa, there is one on ebay at the moment in a different colour but with a label. A google image search throws up a couple more, one also has a label.

I think it's much more Maltese than English.
They didn't use much silver chloride at IoWSG. A little use early on, in Aurene, and then much later on, when Tim was making some special tribute pieces, but its use did not extend to any of the more everyday items.
I'm fairly sure this might have some silver chloride in it. ???
I'm more used to seeing this sort of colourway without any blue in it from Mdina, with the blue, I'd lean much more to Mtarfa. Their earthtones-style colourway often did have a deep blue in it.

Thanks, that's very good to know!  :)
It was only a very vague and uneducated thought, based on outward appearances only, and even those are not that similar.
It comes down to cobalt blue with unusual features; but the features are very different. :-[
