Overview

This short book begins your guide to Pirelli, Bimini and Komaromy Glass. What figurines and other glass did these London Lampworkers really make; how can you identify a genuine piece; and is yours worth hundreds or is it just a ten dollar copy? This is the introductory book to a Trilogy which will help you to identify Pirelli, Bimini and Komaromy glass as well as introduce the people who made this glass.

The first chapter explains what it is about Pirelli, Bimini and Komaromy that makes them stand out from other lampworkers of the mid 20th century. Then chapter two discusses what lampworking is, who made it and what its history is. Chapter 3 gives an overview of what Pirelli, Komaromy and Bimini produced and how you can identify it. And the final chapter introduces the main contributors to this Trilogy and explains their special connection to our three London Lampworkers.
