Here's another gorgeous piece of crystal from Germany, a bell with an etched bird on three sides, three more birds on the top side, a diamond shaped pattern on the remaining sides, and a sawtooth edge. The clapper is also crystal and is held on by a metal chain. This bell was once made by the Hofbauer Company of Germany and was part of their Byrdes Crystal Collection. Unfortunately, they are no longer in business. This is one of their nicer bells measuring just under 7" tall and 3 1/8" in diameter at the bottom. It is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks, but does have factory original straw marks on the inside and a smaller one on the outside of a medallion. The bell still retains its original "Hofbauer" label and is dated 1984. It has a musical tone when rung and reflects the light beautifully. VERY nice, I'm sure you'll be pleased.
