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.

The Blenko Collectors 4 website has a good selection of Blenko Colors and we refer folks to this
site to help with color identification.
Blenko Project has 6 volunteers who accept your letter and photo - we currently have a back log of over 11 months.
We can provide you with the names and addresses of certified appraisers who for an hourly fee
will identify and value ( when possible) your glass.
While we realize the back log is frustration. Two of our most prolific identification volunteers
became unable to volunteer due to personal tragedies involving fire and flooding in 2018.
Thank you for being patient.
We recommend you first spend some time searching catalogs or photos on the web for your glass,
if then you are unable to label.
We'll accept your request via email with clear photos and measurements.

Mother's Day had its USA origins in W.Va.
When you google Mother's Day you'll see the following:
The modern holiday of Mother's Day was first celebrated in 1908, when Anna Jarvis held a memorial for her mother at St Andrew's Methodist Church in Grafton, West Virginia.[ St Andrew's Methodist Church now holds the International Mother's Day Shrine. Her campaign to make Mother's Day a recognized holiday in the United States began in 1905, the year her mother, Ann Reeves Jarvis, died. Ann Jarvis had been a peace activist who cared for wounded soldiers on both sides of the American Civil War, and created Mother's Day Work Clubs to address public health issues. Anna Jarvis wanted to honor her mother by continuing the work she started and to set aside a day to honor all mothers because she believed a mother is "the person who has done more for you than anyone in the world"
Each year for more than a decade Blenko Glass has made 'something special ' for this Holiday.
You'll love their 2019 Mother's Day

I'm in Scottsdale, Ariz Its much to expensive to pay for heavy Blenko to be shipped to my home.
Are there dealers closer to me?
I'm fearful to purchase on ebay.
This is a great time to start purchasing Blenko Glass. They have recently hired a design team, that is energetic and the product has never been better.
www.blenkoglass.com ( Blenko Website) has a feature that allows you to enter your address and they find the nearest dealer and then provide you with his contact information.
Thank you for your interest in BLENKO GLASS.
Blenko has been making fine handcrafted glass for more than 100 years.

It's been a long time since Blenko had a full time on site designer - currently they have two.
Think Birthday - Mothers Day, Father's Day or just a GIFT FOR YOURSELF.
