    This German made crystal vase is 10" high x 6" widest x 3" bottom and in perfect condition. This was a GW find from a few years ago for very little money. I don't remember what I paid for it, but it was definitely under $5. It is so heavy (7 lbs 14 ounces) that when I reached up and lifted it off of the shelf, my ears popped. It is a big, heavy hunk of crystal and, yes, I do use it as a door stop. I've given up trying to figure out the makers who made German crystal. There are lots of generic labels like this one. The label on this vase was in perfect condition when I found the vase and read "Genuine Lead Crystal over 24% PbO Made in Germany". I move it every day, so at some point the label suffered. I have quite of bit of crystal but this vase is a bit unique and I have never seen another like it. It has an amazing clear, bell like tone when even lightly touched.
