It does look rather Isle of Wight Studio Glass-y.
Possibly New Kyoto variation?

Yes to New Kyoto white, some more examples, it can display a slightly blue-grey tone when photographed on a dark background.

You are very welcome. John and I have both been collecting Mdina for a little bit longer than you have.
(I think we've got to the point we've actually stopped.  ::) )
