One for the Cognescenti on the revered JB. I hope someone can tell me who might have made this jug and 6 glasses.Clearly they are ornamental and very fragile but there are no markings whatsoever.My friend's late wife bought them sometime ago but he too knows nothing about them.I suspect they may be fairly valuable and possibly an exhibition piece.
Any thoughts greatly appreciated that will enable me to research them further.

Probably art deco.
Still thinking... ;)
Reminiscent of Cambridge Glass (Ohio)
Some of their stuff from the 30s feature female figures as the stem of glasses.

think I've found it
Is this the same?
looks very similar though the glasses are a slightly different shape. But as they're handmade there are quite likely to be variations between sets
If so its from Bimini Glass and by Fritz Lampl
wonders of Google
I found a few other sets for sale online as well - each slightly different e.g. colour of glass in some is blue or green, in others the shape of the glasses varies.

Thanks Milo I found it at the same time on another site after googling all afternoon.
For the record they are made by Bimini Werkstette in Austria by a chap called Fritz Lampll.
Radar,your Cambridge link helped as well. I told the wife that Ppruners would know the answer!!
Sadly, not worth 1000's but there you go.
Thanks a lot
