The goblet is dated 78, the 193 is possibly a shape number, nice to have a set of four. I have never seen a carriage before and without the sticker would have doubted very much that it was Mdina! This is a much later sticker probably from 80's/90's

Hi guys, can anyone tell me how this sort of decoration is called? It look like it is clear glass cased in a few layers of dark ruby red glass with lustre finish. 3 1/2'' tall and 4 3/8'' in diameter.

Looks acid etched.

It can well be Naomi, but the surface is very smooth, acid etched is usually quite rough. I can also clearly see the different layers of glass as well.

Could it be the "graal" technique?

My understanding of the graal technique is the glass is engraved then covered with a thin layer of clear glass. The photos are a bit dark so I can't see if there's a surface layer.
I thought etched because there appear to be layers or steps around the edges of the raised areas indicating several episodes of etching until the glass craftsman got down to the required level . The surface doesn't have to be rough.
