Hi Ray, I was watching this, but fell asleep when it came up.  :D

The signature looks like Gozo, which is in Malta.
Women and cats will do as they please,
and men and dogs should get used to the  idea.

Maybe not, it oozes quality and now you have a probable ID, they still active? If yes, get more info from them.

On a technical point, the overlay colouring was done using powdered glass rather than a gathered / blown overlay cup method. This is the reason for the "fuzzy" edges of the yellow and white where it was cut through on the base.

Although this method of overlay is generally not as skillful or as good to look at as the cup method, it is how Paul Ysart made his overlay weights, which are a) very rare and b) very expensive to buy!
