Is this real Mdina Glass? (Ans yes, ID = Mdina, Malta)
« on: June 28, 2008, 02:45:32 AM »
I bought a heavy glass vase which has a Mdina  sticker on and also the base is signed Malino Malk 99’ or Molino Malk 99’. The vase is 6.5”(16cm) high and max diameter 4.5”(12cm).
Is it a fake as l thought for Mdina glass the maker does not sign his name on the base. This vase is almost like a studio glass.
Any information is always welcome.
