A thoroughly enjoyable, informative and illuminating text that gives an introduction and overview to the renowned London based glass lamp-workers Pirelli, Bimini and Komaromy. Illustrated with examples from the range of their beautifully crafted works. The text gives the reader guidance on how to identify the respective lamp-workers' hand in what many may consider as mere trinketure. To the informed collector/dealer however here is sound advice on how to ensure the authenticity of items they may own or be thinking of acquiring for pleasure or investment. Included are reminiscences from those connected personally and/ or professionally in London based lamp-working. The first of a four part trilogy-cal treasure and I am certainly looking forward to the future publications in this series.

Angela has produced the first of her trilogy on the amazing world of Lampworked Glass, focussing on Bimini, Pirelli and Komaromy, the 'London Lampworkers'.

This is sensitively written with great knowledge of the history of the subject, and starts the process of identifying the different ways of ensuring the validity of any of these masterpieces you may posess or be considering purchasing.
I say sensitively, because the love and affection she holds for this type of glass spills over into her writing and fills the reader / collector with enthusiasm.

As the first of her trilogy, it is a taster of things to come, and I for one look forward with enthusiasm and a modicum of impatience for the next book.

Angela's book is long overdue for us all and will be incredibly useful in identifying the work of these 3 lamp workers, one being my late father, Istvan Komaromy (Com-arrr-oh-me) whose work has been wrongly attributed for too long. This book - and its trilogy group to come - achieves its objectives in a most interesting manner. A good read! From collaborating with Angela! I know her research is painstakingly undertaken and readers will not only enjoy this book but learn a great deal from it. Highly recommended!

I love this little book and having read it am already inpatient for the next ones in the trilogy series which I believe haven't even been written yet. Angela Bowey is a leading expert on all things glass in my humble collectors opinion and writes with such authoritative ease and enthusiasm there is nothing to fault with this book.

Very informative. Taught me a lot about a subject I was previously very vague about. I look forward to the other books in the trilogy.
