    I picked up these two beauties.

    Both have are marked on the base with Mdina Glass 1975 - but one is also signed and has a label.

    I am hoping the signature is that of Michael Harris and, indeed, the more I look the more I see "Harris" - but this could be wishful thinking! In addition, the others I can find on line all say "Michael Harris" - not just "Harris".
    Finally, I read an article with a comment by Mark Hill which said that Michael Harris left Malta in 1972. As this is dated 1975 it only adds to my confusion!

    Any ideas ?


    p.s... I know, the signature could be a forgery...:-(.........

      I spoke to a friend and he has told me that the signature (or squiggle) is that of Eric Dobson. The other possibility was Said but there are subtle difference with a flourish at the end.

      He also mentioned that the Harris signature is always clear, well defined, tight and clear.
