|1987 Basket Designed by DS|
We have received this same complaint over a dozen times in the five years I've assisted with the blog. Its a common complaint to have issue with the joints near the handles. This is also one of the most difficult pieces to acquire. So many were broken. The handles are fragile. We'll post this as a request.
Readers if you own a 87 Birthday Vase and you are not a Birthday Collector perhaps you'd be willing to rehome the vase?
If so send a note to email@example.com and we'll put you in contact with collectors seeking this item
Heart of Glass - Blenko Glass
Blenko Glass is a West Virginia treasure that spans generations. Nothing symbolizes the state of West Virginia better or more beautifully than Blenko Glass. We will discuss current and former craftsmen and designers and how important it is that Blenko and West Virginia glass be appreciated and valued by the younger generation.

I sent an email June 6 and have not heard back so I am re sending. Please tell
me if this is a Blenko, I see fish in the catalogs but no turtles.
We are trying to liquidate an estate, the daughter said it was bought in the 1950's.
We are more than 11 months behind in responding to questions from the www.blenkoproject.org email. Our volunteers are working as quickly as possible, however, we receive multiple request daily, many containing several images that require research to determine their origin.
It is now our policy to determine - the glass is Blenko or not Blenko and then determine the maker ONLY if the original sender makes a second request.
If our volunteers are not 100% or can't find an item in the catalogs we own they will respond within 2 weeks of date the volunteer receives the photos.
Note: It is our belief the above Turtle is NOT Blenko. It was in no catalog we own. If a Blenko Blog reader knows the origin of this 1960s turtle please notify this reader via a comment. Thank you.
