I bought this PWt off Ebay from Bulgaria on spec.  I did not believe it to be Orrefors as claimed but it was interesting anyway.  When I complained they refunded the purchase price and I still have it - but now I would like to try to find a maker as in many ways it is well done.


The actual sunbather is a very thin layer c. 5mms above the orange "sand".  The base is only roughly polished and the side stand is finished the same way.  The glass is also a very pale brown - not what I would eexpect form a piece like this if it came out of China.   Otherwise I have to say it is very neatly put together.

An ideas as to where it was made would be appreciated.

Its an interesting weight and has several distinguishing characteristics,  I am surprised nobody has narrowed it down as yet. Roger.

Try looking up Phoenician glass Malta   also item num 2007 6044 5629 on ebay, it may be finished now but it looks the same manufacturing process. Regards Roger.

I wonder if it is actually Bulgarian; a Black Sea resort souvenir (There is a Bulgarian glass industry)
