Hi, can anyone help please. I am trying to read what is on the bottom of this glass cat, but I cant make out what it is. I have had the magnifying glass out, but still have no idea. Does anyone recognise it? Many thanks, Sarah

The signature looks like it came from Mtarfa, a Maltese company closely related to Mdina (two brothers operate the respective factories).

Thanks Dencill :-)

I havent a clue. Just got a few glass items (all cats) and I am trying to find out some information on them.

Ive found one like the tall jug at the back on ebay, they think it might be a nut pourer? The little one on the right hand side is pretty clever though, its got a lattice type hollow body.
