mdina paperweight with labels.
« on: January 08, 2017, 06:33:08 PM »
Picked this weight up yesterday, as I did not have one with the oblong sticker. could someone tell me the approximate age of the weight, and the meaning of the oblong sticker.
The mdina mark on the base seems to have been done with a vibro etch tool.
Any help appreciated,
Tim

The numbers are thought to refer to pattern or catalogue numbers, that particular Made in Malta label is often found on Tortoiseshell items and other decors that where made in the mid and late 70s.

There is another Made in Malta label which I believe to be earlier in date.

Thanks for the reply John, still building my knowledge of Mdina glass. Its good to have an approximate date for the item and some background on the labels.
