Experience teaches that anyone who begins to collect in any field can feel a change in his soul. He becomes a joyful man filled with a deeper empathy, and a more open understanding of worldly things moves his soul.    (Alfred Lichtwark 1852 1914)

That's definitely not the same as the label on mine Cathy. The box my glasses came in (which I still cannot find anywhere!) had the same logo as on David's orange plate above. It was on a black box which had the logo and gold stars as a random pattern across it.  It appears there are at least two makers of Astra drinksware!  ::) Just to confuse things! ;D

Possibly an even Australian importer?

Could well be - and much later as well by the label style?

Another Astra glasses set, boxed, with the label visible.  This is the same label as on my original box. Nothing else on the box to indicate origin, just that label.
