Hi Huronia, thank you, that's interesting to know. Greece and Cyprus it is then. :)

Good result, I wonder if the glass was local or imported.

Not sure that actually is an ID - I'd rather call it a retail label.  There is no Cypriot glass maker or even refinery on record.

I was thinking more the metalwork as being local as the design fits. So imported glass is likely... would not be looking for a refinery but rather a maker of gift-ware and I guess they exist/ed on Cyprus.

Are you thinking the glass is made somewhere, then metalwork added elsewhere, and then the whole thing imported into Cyprus for resale, Ivo?

I am convinced that the whole thing is mass produced in either Egypt, Ukraine, Azerbeidjan, India or Iran and dumped on the giftware market at dump prices. I smell a dump, a big doodoo. The only local input is a sticker.  That is why you find this schtuff all over Spain and in every corner of the mediterranean.
