He has etched detail,flat base with "Made in England" engraved.
Quite heavy & solid,approx  11cm in length.

Just read the whole name  "Hadeland" is not "Made in England" it comes from Norway and as far as I know they are still in business.

Whoever said that "Snap judgements tend to come unstuck" had it very right.

Hi Kitty Kat, nice to see you again!!

Hadeland is lovely glass....I adore and collect it...every piece I have is precious...so don't dismiss its value.  They have the knack of making the most wonderfully expressive pieces of glass with the minimum of fuss.....if you ever want to sell it....let me know please.

Hope you had a lovely Christmas, and best wishes for 2012.

Rosie.  :)

Hiya Rosie,cheers for the welcome back ;D
I have heaps to catch-up on,haven't even had the time to see what been going on in here.

I searched up the name & bingo,found some lovely pieces.
I hate to say it "but i love a good feeling piece"   :smg: or a good feel if you follow me  :wsh:
If something feels lovely in my hand its a winner ;D
This fellow does & while he does not go with anything much that i have he is a great addition & i hope i dont trail off onto another collection coz i dont need another  :thud:

Hope everyones chrissy was lovely,woohoo for a new collecting year!
cheers kat

I'm with you all the way there Kat, they do feel lovely and are sometimes referred to as 'hand coolers'.
Now have a look at the Steuben pieces and drool!!  They are lovely and like your seal pup,  very simply styled.....but oh so expensive!

So it looks as though I will have to find my own one then.  :cry:

Happy New Year then....you realise you will now be hooked on glass animal collecting!!!!!!!!
