Can anyone tell me the identity of this small vase please? I thought it was perhapd Mdina? Has lovely green and blue colourway with a half ribbed bottom. Many thanks :)

No but close. ;D

It is from Mtarfa, very distinctive that 'lemon squeezer' base. There are a couple of other examples if you search this board.

The colours are really lovely, aren't they?  :)
I suspect fairly earlyish Mtarfa for this design.
