Blenko swirl medalion Husted vases


 
 
 
Next up is a nice couple of Husted designed crackle vases that I really enjoy.
The smaller version with the Tangerine swirls has been an early piece in my
collection with it's larger brother just arriveing in the past week. First time
I have seen this piece and I was glad to finally have this example. These are
Blenko #622L with Turquoise medallions and a Blenko 622M with Tangerine
medallions. The Tangerine is my favorite because the color makes the medallions
look like unopened roses.
 
Hope you enjoy,
Bruce S
