I don't see the colourway in there current offerings: http://www.mdinaglass.com.mt/index.php/default/eshop-online/vases-bowls.html

It has the amorphous look of their recent production though.

It looks like a piece of Mtarfa. I certainly recognise the design - I can't make out the mark.

Mark is very difficult to photograph well but definitely Mdina

The mark looks like Mtarfa to me, here's one for comparison.

Another attemt at photographing mark. It still looks more like Mdina than Mtarfa to be but it is so indistinct I am happy to go with consencus, John

It is definitely a Mtarfa design, 100%, no question about it at all.
It's also not a Mdina design.  ;D

From the pieces I have seen and have owned,  I would agree it is Mtarfa,  but just for your peace of mind,  you might like to rub a little talcum powder into the signature and see if that helps to make it a bit clearer for you John.
