Bimini & Lauscha Glass Identification Guide + Gallery

<< Back to Encyclopedia Home Page

Bimini glass was founded in Austria in 1923, by Fritz Lampl. The company produced lampwork glass sculptures of figures, animals and vases, as well as sets of drinking glasses with matching decanters. Designs were created by Fritz Lampl himself, and his brother in law Joseph Berger. In the late 1930's, Fritz Lampl was forced to leave Austria due to the rise of Nazism. He fled to London, England, where he set up a new glass company under the name Orplid glass.

Lauscha Glass, based in the Thueringen region of Germany, is known to have made lampworked glass very similar in style to Bimini.
