incredibly clear stopper - as a collector of pressed glass I've never seen such glass quality  :?  (this one belongs to my sister BTW)

Thank you for your time and comments  :wink:

It looks like a Mdina signature to me.  :?:

I also thought Mtarfa but I had no idea that they made irridescent glass (I am learning). Also, I thought the "T" might have been crossed for Mtarfa, I understand though that there can be differences with the marks.

Yes, Mtarfa have made iridescent wares.

Here's a vase I bought sometime around 1991, I think:

And the signature (photo taken hand-held - vase in one hand, camera in the other, and under kitchen lighting!):

Hello Pamela  :D - the signature reads Mtarfa.

I am sure! 8)

I agree. It's like the sig on my Mtarfa paperweight, which has lovely internal irridescence. Their older stuff is much nicer than the current range.
