Not sure if this is in the correct subject page.
Picked this up today and wonderd if this is the earthtones colourway.
Did they produce this item for many years and from which era ?
Any help appreciated,
Tim

Yes, it's Mdina.
Yes, they produced these for many, many years, but from the appearance of this one, (it's quite busy and 3-D, there is a lovely striated mixture of reds with the browns, the yellow is a nice deep shade and has a robust texture), I would think it's quite early, late '70s - early '80s - ish?
