ORCHID! Blenko Glass Company.

Blenko Glass is known for its fine colors.  The pinks have always been considered rare and are very popular with the female customers.  For some reason Blenko doesn't keep 'pink' colors in the color line.   The top photo is of orchid - which has been around for a few years.  You must see the orchid - its even more beautiful than this photo.   The color is vivid - yet clear and allows for the stems of your cut flowers to be visible.  This one is a keeper!

Predesigner ruffle vases

HI Hillary,

As you are well aware by now I really enjoy finding the older designs of Blenko such as these examples of Predesigner vases. From the left is the Blenko #388 Footed ruffle vase in Lemon, Blenko #389 Ruffle topped vase in Ruby, and the Blenko #390 vase in Turquoise. I have several examples of the 388's and 390's but this is only the second #389 I have been able to locate and purchase. Ruby is always plus for any Blenko that I can find.

Hope this will help your readers find one for their collections as well.
