Arcadia Lead Crystal West Germany Vintage Need Info
« on: November 06, 2014, 04:20:32 PM »
Hello!  I am new to the group.  I am looking for information that might help me date a vase I have.  It has stickers that read, "Arcadia Hand Made in Western Germany" and "Lead Crystal Guaranteed Hand Cut."  I have Googled for information, but can only find more recent pieces, made in Hungary.  Any help will be most appreciated!

I had been to the Replacements site, with no luck.  The link you sent with the two vases, however, is VERY helpful, as to pricing, if not dating.  Thank you so very much for your time and your help!   :)
