hi everybody! my name is les. i live in toronto and have been collecting vintage art glass on and off for the past ten years. firstly, i would like to thank you Deborah, for the time and initiative in creating such an informative and beautiful website! i use it as a constant source for information and inspiration! im excited to b a new member of the forum to learn more about our Canadian glass artists, their variety of unique pieces and subtle variations (sometimes not so subtle lol) that set each one apart; making each piece special. i look forward to learning the story of the finds that that each of the members have collected and sharing a few of mine. javascript:emoticonp('Smile')

one of my latest purchases....i spotted these little deer at "the singing lady" consignment shop on the queensway two weeks ago. i didnt buy them...the cheap in me came out. lol they were having their next price drop in three days. i took a chance and came back three days later...and here they are Smile i havent been able to find any reference on-line of cranberry animal figurines and hope that someone may have a piece of information to help tell their story. thanks[

Hi Les,

Thanks for the kind comments - appreciate it and will pass on to my layout guy as his site design really gave the glass the "gallery" look I think it needs.

Chalet and Lorraine did not do cranberry animals but Rossi did so these could be Canadian. I have seen ones like this before and the reason I think they could be Rossi is because of the eyes - very like Chalet in that they are not applied or "outies" and Rossi learnt his cranberry and did alot of animals at Chalet.

Good luck hunting!

Hi Les,

Well - you sure got me. Really great pieces! I have never seen Chalet cranberry animals before and especially any in this style but the label explains alot. That is a very early N.C. Cameron label - their major and long time Canadian distributor. These definitlely would not have been typical production pieces - the style is not typical of anything they regularly did. However, N.C. Cameron did carry alot of cranberry for them so it would be fitting that they ended up marked that way. I would imagine too, given the style that they were done at the end of day or were testing them. I recently got a Riekes Crisa catalogue and some of the animals in there by Chalet for Riekes were very unusual. As cranberry was one of the later lines as well - maybe they were trying to find out if these would be a popular addition.

Excellent - looking forward to seeing what else you have up your sleeve. I should have paid more attention to my feeling about the eyes.LOL Just so you know re Rossi and his cranberry - he used N.C. Cameron as a distributer after Chalet's bankruptcy.

Hi again,

I am really glad you posted those - I should also remember "Never say never with Chalet"! As soon as you do- up pops something new or an exception to what you are used to. Gianfranco said "Never pass an elephant without checking" - I am now going to look at all these stlye and pay much more attention to cranberry figurines. It is not something I collect but my Mom does and she loves the animals so it would be a hoot to find her ones like yours!

Again - super find!
