This is not a Bimini glass. Bimini used lead free crystal and the bowls of all their glasses are very thinly blown and very light. This is far more robust and eminently more useable than Bimini wares. We thought this may be a 1950s Lauscha glass from Germany who produced their own Bimini inspired glass or possibly Orplid glass, founded by Fritz Lampl after he fled Austria who we know to have produced lead glass examples with decorative lampwork knops . We did not know who made this for certain, we did know Bimini Werkstatte did not.

Many thanks to Mr G Woodley for directing us to an image on page 178 of 20th Century British Glass - Charles R Hajdamach who states that this was designed by William Swingwood for Stevens & Williams.

This is one of the first first two lead glass examples we have encountered of this type
