Hello, See
 http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&category=20&item=7306131787&rd=1
It would appear to be Alum Bay, Isle of Wight. I'm not sure, but Chris Lucas who does Alum Bay might have trained with the Harris IoW, which might give you the "Mdina"ish feel about it. They're both IoW. The great-glass website does not make any connection. Cheers, Sue.
Cheers, Sue (M)

and the item next to it, in a search on Isle of Wight. (I can't get both numbers to copy at the same time and get back here to put them both in) Cheers, Sue
