Possibly a one-box fits all approach. Different times...

The box states "Hand made ornamental glass figures" and not "glass animals" - I too thought one box fits all... The box itself was thin and made with cheap looking cardboard - perhaps more of a post war years (50s) product rather than later when there was more affluence.

I think the box is 1950s looking at jigsaw puzzle boxes that purport to be from that era.
Also I think three of the figures are a little curious - the ones with the flatter pinched feet and multi coloured eyes.  Their eyes and their feet are different from the other figures aren't they?  Also the others all appear to have amber hair and the colours of their glass is more muted than the three with the odd eyes.  The yellow on the one on the left is very bright compared to the yellow on the others.  :-[ sorry John.  I'm not sure that is a complete matching set but I could be wrong.

They could well have been made in a "cottage industry" sort of manner - lots of individuals, working at home, to a general specification, so they may not all have been made by the same person.  ???

Yes they could.  But they are quite different  :-\  They look as though they might be two different sets to me  :-[
The colours of the glass is also very different and the design of the pieces.

They could well be a marriage of sorts, I agree two styles. Almost every one had a label, some were red and some green, all the same supplier.
