Hofbauer BMW crystal car figurine, paperweight

Classy - just like the real BMW.
This great glass crystal BMW model is made by Hofbauer. According to a description I found online, "Karl Hofbauer", West Germany, created a new product-line by the registered name of Magic Crystal for Men. This was in 1987. This line consisted of automobile replicas made of genuine lead crystal with more than 24%PbO. The underside of the piece is frosted glass to help emphasize the features inside the car.

The car is in excellent condition with no chips, repairs or scratches. The label is missing.The car measures 8½ " long by 3" wide. The crystal is clear and white as shown in the first photo. The other photos give it a yellowish cast that isn't t I took those pictures when the sun was setting and it gave the yellow cast to the glass. I'm including them because the photos showed more details from different angles.

Vroooom. Vroooom.

I DO NOT PROFIT FROM SHIPPING LIKE MANY SELLERS. Sellers who gouge buyers with overpriced shipping is a pet peeve of mine. With my auctions, this won't happen to you. I loosely pack an item before I list it on eBay so I can give buyers an idea of what shipping will cost. The weight is usually right. If, when I actually pack the item for shipping and find that the weight bumped shipping into a lower shipping

Insurance ($1.35 for items valued at less than $50), is optional for USPS packages, however, I will not be responsible for lost or damaged items if insurance is declined.


Check my feedback and you'll see that I pack items well. It's important to me because it is important to you. If a package requires a lot of bubble wrap or peanuts, I may charge $1 or less for materials. Usually neighbors or friends give give their bubble wrap or peanuts to me so I can avoid buying the materials, thus saving you money.

I prefer PayPal because I can get your package to you sooner, but I also accept money orders. I WILL BE HAPPY TO COMBINE PURCHASES TO SAVE YOU SHIPPING. If you have multiple items and pay by PayPal, please pay for them in one payment.

Sellers who practice unfair retaliation on feedback is another pet peeve of mine. I always leave feedback for all of my buyers right after I receive payment. Sadly, many sellers have grown to expect feedback from buyers before they (the sellers) leave feedback for the buyers. Buyers are then afraid to leave honest feedback for fear of retaliation. This happened to me recently - I left neutral, not negative, feedback for a seller who grossly overcharged shipping. He retaliated by giving my a negative feedback even though I paid him the total, including the overpriced shipping, promptly.

I represent all of my items with sincerity and try to describe flaws and attributes with care. I strive to work to the "customer is always right" principle. If you are not satisfied with this item because I mistakenly misrepresented it, I will be happy to return your money when you ship the item back in the same condition it was when I sent it. Shipping and handling fees will not be refunded.
