    Its from a company called Chalet Glass...here is an excerpt froma web site..."Chalet Glass is a particular brand of Murano glass. Glassblowers from Murano, Italy began making Chalet glass in Montreal around 1960. In 1963, a fire forced the Chalet glass makers to move their operation to Cornwall, Ontario where it continued until 1981" You can find so much more if you google or do an ebay search. Hope this helps :)

    Also see here for several more examples of Chribska glass, some with "Bohemian Glass" labels attached: http://www.20thcenturyglass.com/glass_encyclopedia/bohemian_glass/chribskaglass_home.htm

    Thank you Wayne for the confirmation, so much of this glass get's labeled as Murano Or Chalet, where as Sklo Union glass is just as well made and deserve's credit in it's own right, i particularly like some of the pressed examples designed by Visner, Jurnikl and Filip amongst others.
