I'm guessing that the Walsall, England might refer to a distributor.

 :hiclp:  Some Good reading there from GMB archives.   :hiclp:  I see I am not the only one wondering about this.

I know I had found on line some sites about AltaGlass (one word) and then also Alta Glass (two words) last year.  See this post of mine here:  http://www.glassmessages.com/index.php/topic,32444.0.html

Wonder IF any connection there at all ????

Still seems strange that AltaGlass (in Alberta, Canada) would have the maker of the label (England) on the label.  I am sure that there is a place in Canada that can do label.  So this just seems a little strange.  I mean on the label you are saying that it is Canadian Glass made in Alberta...then in Fine print (the label) is says England.

Strange... ???

Sorry Rose it is a loon.  Attached are 4 photos , two penguins & two of a loon and or loon poster.  Not that the penguin can't raise its wings above horizontal and they are distincst "batons" whereas the loon does raise it high and the feathers drape down in a curtain like fashion as in you lovely little weight.

PS.  I thought Robert Held is Candoan too - hence my attempt.
I bamle all snileplg eorrrs on the Cpomuter Kyes.  They confuse my fingers !!!

I see what you mean Ross -- but to me the Loon (as the Loonie is on our everyday money - SEE HERE ) has a much longer bleak, and this little glass guy does not.  I guess he could be either.  He looks more like a penguin to me -- but Hey -- its a Bird of some sort....LOL

So everyday when I pull a dollar out of my wallet -- I face the loonie on our $1.00 coins here.....so the bleak of a loonie (as least here in Canada) are long.

I will just call it a Bird... :24:

....and Ross too was in the Right Country too with his guess of Robert held.

So Anik, and rosieposie will have to take you along on their  (imaginary)  trip to Italy that they won....  :thup: :24:

Wallasy is in Cheshire, where my Father was born Rose.  I was born in Liverpool, just across the Mersey River.

Is it worth looking to see if there is/was a printing works there that made labels for other countries.

Also, I noticed that Worthpoint, the online auction house, has several Alta Glass pieces mentioned, and they interpret the label as meaning the glass ornaments were made in Wallasy, England for Altaglass!!!! :24: :24: :24: :24: :24: :24:

As noted above. There is nothing in the referenced message topic about this possibility.

And here is a picture of what Rose is talking about, the Canadian "Loonie"
