Hi, I have one of these in my cabinet, I'm pretty sure its German by Hofbauer. They make little trinket boxes with birds too.  Cheryl

Hi Cheryl,Kimanded,many thanks for the quick response! it looks such a pretty range i am almost tempted to keep it but i have so much of my late aunts stuff still to go through and am keeping more and more of the glass it seems never ending never intended to collect glass but it is getting a bit addictive ..Lynn :-\

Hi Lynn, you should be careful, before you know it you will have glass in every room of the house, on every window sill and even in the roof!!!!! It starts with a few bits and before you know it, its everywhere. Then when you see something you like you still have to buy it!!!! My poor husband has got very good at putting up shelves in awkward places. I can't bear to part with any of it yet.  You have been warned. ;D   :24:
