Bimini Snake?
« on: April 14, 2010, 06:04:21 PM »
Acquired this  morning at my local car boot and looks like Bimini but doesn't have the stripes through it and much thicker and heavier glass than the Bimini one I already own.  Hand blown and has polished pontil on base.  Anyone please?  thanks Jen

Not Bimini, those are lampworked; that's way too sturdy and been made on a punty.

I agree, this is not a Bimini snake.  It looks like Murano.
