Welcome to the board. Is is signed? if not Mdina seems likely, but Mtarfa and Phoenician also used pink splodge and often in similar shapes to Mdina (the difference seems to be mostly the shade of pink). It's just a decorative bottle; you'd have trouble getting flowers in round that stopper.

Both are typical Mdina shapes.
The stoppered bottle is called an "ink bottle", the other is a "side-stripe vase". Both shapes are Michael Harris designs, carried on long after he left, the patterns and colours are not his.

Pink and white weren't used until the '80s. (Michael Harris: Mdina Glass & Isle of Wight Studio Glass, by Mark Hill.)

I suspect these date to the time after Joseph Said took over.
