I had to call in some help on identifying this piece of Blenko. I stumbled upon the Ruby piece and took a gamble that it was Blenko. The color alone is so distinctive but it also had the pontil mark and "feel" of Blenko. Light weight, quality work that just said it was probably their work. I posted it to another site and one of the readers sent back a catalog page from the thirties that confirmed my suspicions. It was indeed a Blenko #351 flat sides vase. Maybe your readers will have the same luck when they are out "hunting".
Hope you enjoy,
