    This is a lovely rare glass figurine from Bimini. I do believe it comes from the 1950s, but haven't been able to find much info about Bimini appart from the facts that the Bimini Glass Co. was created in Vienna in 1923 by Fritz Lampl, although in 1938, he migrated to England where he re-established Bimini Ltd. in London and changed the name to Orplid Glass, so... could it be from the 20s/30s?

    If there's any specialist in Bimini glass I'd be thankful for any info about it.

      Sorry i couldn't answer before to your love and inputs. Been too busy since i shared it!

      Carlos has just told me this beauty was bought in Prague. I wonder if that points out to it being pre-1938 :)

      She's so special and fragile!
