Help ID a glass bear
« on: September 19, 2006, 10:19:16 PM »
Hello,

I'm hoping someone can help me ID this glass bear. He measures 5" tall by 7" long & has a ground & polished base.

Just wanted to say I think this bear was made by Chalet Glass of Canada.

Cool, Sandra.

I didn't realize that Chalet made figurines.

Could be V.Nason but it is a very generic style. Wasn't aware of Chalet making figurines though.

I didn't know Chalet made animals either so that's why  I didn't even think to check Chalet . I've since seen a few signed bears & other animals.
