hi Bernard,
at least i can help with a translation:

real/genuine
lead crystal
mouth-blown
all hand-
cut

time-frame may be wide (30´s-50´s) unless someone knows, which manufacturer´s label it is.

Dirk — Grateful thanks.   It was the "echt" that threw me as I couldn't help seeing it as "etched"!

Hello Bernard,
My instinct is that it is of DDR origin (especially since the label has no maker's name).  I'll have to look in some boxes to give you a possible candidate.  May take a couple of days.
Regards,
Chris

Any new thoughts on this three-piece trinket set, please.   In particular has the label been identified.

Sorry about the previous posts being smashed up by the recent change to SMF 2, but the picture links still work OK.
