A most marvelous crystal milk pitcher from W. Germany made by the now out of business Hofbauer company. They were known for their quality crystal and this piece is no exception. A little harder to find than it's larger counterpart the pitcher features etched and pressed birds on three sides within medallions and is further decorated with linear designs throughout the body, a saw-tooth top edge and indented areas on the handle. Gorgeous! It is quite heavy for its size and sparkles beautifully when the light hits it. Stands 6.25" (at it's tallest area), 5" in diameter at the top, is approx.7.5" wide from spout to handle and holds 24 ounces. It is in good condition with the exception of a small knock on one of the protruding points (see pic) that you have to look VERY carefully to find. If you like Hofbauer crystal please our listings for additional pieces, with more coming in regularly from Germany.
