Hi Cathy,
It will say Mdina, which is a glass house in Malta.
If I know, I'll comment. If I think I know, I'll have a go. If I have no idea, I'll just keep quiet and learn from others, so the next time I'll know.

Yes they are.
I collect Scottish and Italian paperweights and anything else that strikes my fancy.
