This gorgeous lead crystal banana boat was made by Hofbauer- Bleikristall of West Germany. The bowl is part of the Hofbauer Byrdes line and has center panel with an adorable pressed glass bird in the center. The Hofbauer Byrdes line is quite large including, wine glasses, decanter, napkin holders and all sorts of baskets and dishes. It would be a wonderful line to collect; it is quality crystal and will make a beautiful display.
This particular piece is officially their "Handled Oval Bowl or Canoe". It stands 4 3/4" tall and is 13 3/4" from handle to handle.
Our bowl is in "Excellent Condition" without any nicks, chips or cracks. As always "Double Boxed" for safe travel from our home to yours.
