Object history note

Fritz Lampl (1892 - 1995) was the artistic director of Bimini in Vienna. In 1938 he emigrated to England and founded Orplid Glass. This and the other figures acquired in this group (c.21 to 24- 1995) had been bought by the vendor from a collector who had acquired them in this country during the 1960s and 70s. Though Lampl continued essentially the same production in both Austria and England it seems likely that these were produced in London. The figures were shown in a small display of Bimini / Orplid work in the V&A, July 1995 – Jan 1996
