This is a fabulous piece of Mdina glass.
These early 1970s glass bottle vases are now so much harder to find - especially in this fine condition and in the most attractive blue colour.
It is nice and tall coming in at 14 inches in total height.
It was probably designed by Michael Harris when he first moved to Malta in the 1970s - and obviously, you would have needed a skilled glass blower to make a work of this size and quality.
It is signed Mdina to the base (Harris did not always sign his glasswares).
This one is a tortoiseshell pattern - which has been coated with thin layers of lustre glass and little flecks of greens and yellow - and silvery trail runs all around the bottle.
This fine bottle vase is listed at a very fair price.
