Description

Hofbauer History: The lead crystal Byrdes Collection was manufactured by Hofbauer, West Germany from the late 1970’s into the1980’s. They were advertised as being “fashioned by the finest craftsmen of West Germany” and “hand-cut, acid polished and containing over 24% lead for crystal clarity and superb ring”.

Sadly, the Hofbauer factory burnt down in the mid 1990’s and was not rebuilt. A company named Amaris picked up where Hofbauer left off, but only produced the Byrdes crystal line for another 2-3 years (mostly with red flashing).

Offered here for your consideration is a beautiful Byrdes Collection lead crystal vase with a wonderful sawtooth edge. Each side of the vase has an etched image of the Hofbauer signature perched bird on a branch which is surrounded in an area of purple iridescent flashing.

This wonderful vase measures approximately 3.75 inches high.
The opening measures approximately 2.75 inches by 1.5 inches.

This 24% lead crystal highly collectible Byrdes vase with purple flashing is in excellent condition with no chips or cracks. Vase has the original Hofbauer foil affixed to the side. This sparkling crystal vase would be a great addition to any crystal collection.

Thank you for browsing The Dated Dog.

The tea kettle arrived quickly and it was well-packaged.

The kettle is even more stunning in person. I'm very pleased with this purchase.
