    I've searched Google images, eBay auctions and Etsy stores, along with Replacements.com, and still can't get anymore info about this crystal. They were purchased by my German grandmother in the early 1950s in Vegesack, Germany (northern Germany, near Bremen). They were part of her late dowry that her father let her purchase at a local shop.

    Oma was fixated with leaving labels on so there are pictures of the clearest labels. I have 13 of each of three sizes of glasses. I know that they're Bleikristall - perhaps Hochwertiges - but can't find the pattern anywhere. I'd love to know how old they are and what the pattern is.

      Did more sleuthing! "Hochwertige" refers to the type of item - quality table goods, basically. It's a pattern called Nachtmann by Andernach. Now... anyone that can help on the date??
