This is some lead crystal my parents bought in Austria circa 1970. All my looking around I haven't seen any 'finer' cut crystal anywhere. I'm unable to learn who produced it and what it's value may be.

    Your nice punch set is exactly as you say. 1970s European. The sticker tells you who produced/sold the item. The "lazer" cutting is a copy of old American Brilliant Cut Glass which was cut using large and small wheels. If this were American, from the period, it would be worth a great deal. The market is flooded with this type of glass. You can also buy this style from Turkey, and Czechoslovakia even today. Retail value is not much as it is so common, around $600.00. I am sure it is worth more than that to you as it belonged to your parents.

    Hello Mark,
    I really appreciate your feedback here. Mom and Dad were 'collectors' of this and that, tons of this and that. Unfortunately, my home doesn't have the space for many of these things and my lifestyle doesn't demand them either. So, long story short, I wish I could find a market for this. Thank you again for your assistance.

    Hi,
    The German word on the bottom of the label means "hand ground". That's about it for my German vocabulary. The pieces are beautiful!

    @Pop_abides - yeah, thank you for that. I've had it on eBay once, but maybe had it up for too much $$ (Buy it Now - &750). Maybe I'll try it again. Taking it to a local 'dealer' today who may be interested in it.

    @ cindyjune - Thank you for the comment and your German is right on too (smiling).
