Anyone recognise this rather plump bird Mdina-ish ? 4" high quite heavy.

I think this lovely chubby bird looks, as you have hinted, very Mdina-ish....so if it isn't Mdina,  is it Mtarfa? :X:

Hi Chris,  is there any reason why you would think it isn't Mdina / Mtarfa?  I think it is,  and I would buy it as such. :X:

Hi, Rosie, no reason, sell a lot of glass, so often use the expertise on here for confirmation of things I am not sure of so as to keep my listings as accurate as possible. If you think it's Mdina ( I did) that's good enough for me, though it's not the 1st thing I have been sure is Mdina that turned out to be Mtarfa :-[

Just put Maltese Chris, that should satisfy any buyer in the absence of a label or signature. :sun: 
If you had listed it as unknown,  I would have written to you to say I thought it was Mdina.......especially that size?? :X:
