So is there a relationship between Anna Hütte and Hofbauer (other than they are not the prettiest pieces in the glass world?)

The Hofbauer birds were made by Nachtmann, if they owned Anna Hütte that might be a link.

There is a link:  Annahütte in Windischeschenbach, West Germany, which was a crystal glassworks which apparently went bankrupt.  It was owned by the Hofbauers. There is a potted history here in German: http://www.heimatverein-altenstadt.de/Glasindustrie.php

Trademark data also gives the address as:
ANNAHÜTTE GMBH,
HERMANN-HOFBAUER-STABE 1,
W-8486 WINDISCHESCHENBACH,
GERMANY
