Die Erfahrung lehrt, dass, wer auf irgendeinem Gebiet zu sammeln anfängt, eine Wandlung in seiner Seele anheben spürt. Er wird ein freudiger Mensch, den eine tiefere Teilnahme erfüllt, und ein offeneres Verständnis für die Dinge dieser Welt bewegt seine Seele.
Experience teaches that anyone who begins to collect in any field can feel a change in his soul. He becomes a joyful man filled with a deeper empathy, and a more open understanding moves his soul.
Alfred Lichtwark (1852-1914)

Thanks all.  So the auction house got it wrong . . . they called them friggers and said they were Thomas Webb!

JP - look at these listings on Ebay (not mine) - this one is the same as my elephant one:-

This is the monkey one Rosie mentioned

And this one is of a musician under plam trees - must have been a series of them:-

ALL described as Bimini which I know their not.

I don't think they're Pirelli - wish they were!

I'm just going to get my lovely big glass ship out so that I can take a pic and post it here.  ;D

Hi the first piece is by Jostra, after 1946, and is part of 2400 range, between 2407 & 2453.

Wow, that's brilliant! I never dreamed I'd find out who the maker was. Thank you!!! I've asked you in another post for more or any info on Jostra, if you'd be so kind  :)

Page 182 of 20C glass has a great advert, and some items in it are definitely Jostra (probably all), as the book states they imported.
