Recently Reduced in Price. Hofbauer Byrdes Crystal Oil and Vinegar Carafes Set. Each carafe measures 7-1/4 inches tall and holds 6 ounces of liquid. Made of heavy and sturdy crystal each weighing 14 ounces.

The pressed design all over and on either side the same design of two birds with a ruby red flash glass background. Discontinued; company out of business.

The carafes have no chips, but have minute scratches in the red flash glass, and are in like-new condition having been kept in a display cabinet. One of the stoppers has a chip at the bottom, but does not show when used. A professional could have it repaired if it is a problem.

More about Byrdes Crystal:
Hofbauer Crystal Co. of West Germany produced collectible lead crystal in the mid- to late 1900s. Though the company is now defunct, their lead crystal pieces are popular purchases at antique stores. The history of the company is a part of the history of glass making in the Bavarian region of Germany.

Hofbauer Byrdes Crystal is noted for its traditional bird design cut into the glass. Sometimes a three-dimensional bird finial will top the design of a candy dish or compote. There are several varieties of this crystal that are color-enhanced. In blue, gold and ruby variety as well as clear crystal.

Glassmaker in Bavaria
Many companies established their glass making industries in the region. Among those were Schrenk and Company, Tritschler, Winter Halter, Nachtmann, and Hofbauer. These companies thrived throughout the mid-1900s. In time, though, the businesses declined, and most were closed. The surviving glass company in the region is Nachtmann. Hofbauer Crystal was one of the businesses that closed sometime in the late 1900s.
