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 is its history. Chapter 3 gives an overview of what Pirelli, Komaromy and Bimini produced and how you can identify it.
