This is not the label shown in Hill's book so I am wondering if it is an earlier one.

It looks like Summer Fruits (but I don't know which fruit) which has beeen in production since '93.
Suzygpr has a vase with the 30year anniversary label, I can't remember what it looks like, sorry. It may well be like this. It might be a bit longer though.
Brain awol atm.  :-[

Michael Hill's picture does not include that rather scrappy bottom line "The Original" - and he mentions a somewhat more rectangular label - hence my ponder.

I know, I checked. :thup:

In absence of the piece I know was part of the 30year anniversary label, I've just looked at the labels on bits do I have which are quite recent - they have the "the original" written at the bottom too.
Some are dated 2009, some 2006.

I think this label is simply the most recent. I'm fairly sure the 30 year anniversary one is rectangular and has "30 years of excellence" written on it. Suzy can confirm!

'The Original' was added to labels around 1993 as there were more and more glass companies opening on the Island, there were quite a few label designs used, not all are listed in the book.  Although labels without 'The Original' were continued to be used for a while until the stock of them ran out.

All this is in the book, page 136.

I'm attempting to attach a pic of the 30th Anniversary label - if it works Yay! If not I'll post again and include it there.

Although I'm not posting much at the moment I'm still lurking around in the background, so prod me again if needed.

Like you Sue, I checked all my labelled pieces and the gold square label that includes 'The Original' is only on my later pieces (within the last 10 years).  As far as I know it's the label they are currently using.

"The Original" is not entirely accurate as they were not the first glassmaker on the island....
