Tortoiseshell Goblet
« on: August 27, 2012, 02:52:39 PM »
Goblet in amber glass - hand blown stem and foot, tortoiseshell bowl - very heavy and well made, 6.5" high, bought today for a  few pounds - maybe nothing but worth a chance - anyone recognise it?

Thanks Adam

My guess would be Mtarfa or Mdina

You may be right and it was one of my first thoughts - however it doesn't look Maltese, the tortoiseshell doesn't feel right and its not cased in clear glass like other Mdina goblets I have had.
