Not Maltese!

 >:D >:D >:D It could be the same maker as Craig's pink beast with blue trailing - the bit John thinks is Mdina but I don't.

Is it possible to get a picture of the base and of the top as well?

Is it solid glass or hollowed?

The penny has finally dropped - you have stuck it on some blue-tac to take photos of the base etc.   :pb:

I don't belive it is  :or: - I never seen any work from them like this.  A pity someone did not mark it.  Looks like a studio piece to me.
