The first one is definitely Mdina, I think the second one is too.

I'm not so familiar with the period of the second design though - and the signature is upside-down - and I'm not. :spls:

But neither reads Mtarfa or Phoenician.

If all is not lost, then where the heck is it?

The first one definitely reads Mdina.  :thup:
It's a factory mark, though, not a signature.

Pink mottled stuff dates from the '80s onwards, (my interest is in much earlier stuff. Neither mottled or pink do anything for me, I'm afraid.)
I'm pretty sure the second one reads Mdina too, but would be a good bit later than that. I'm afraid I don't do headstands. I did turn my head upside down, but went dizzy, which affected my reading!

The green one is very pretty, although I'm not 100% it says Mdina
Rotated it, now Steve is upside down  ;D
