Show and Tell - You Respond # 4

I don't recognize this but she reports - it does have a sand blast BLENKO on the bottom. This item belongs to Meg O'Connor of North Carolina and it is from her Mom's estate (may be very old or bought some time before her Mom died in 2005) . Can you help Meg O'Connor identify this bottle? hjh

It's a fairly new piece, made within the past couple of years. As a matter of fact there is one currently on eBay check out auction # 250064921433. The piece itself appears to be based on a design by Joel Myers from the 1960s, but the Desert Green color is a tip off that this is a much newer piece.

Thank you Tim Alonzo.

Tim and Karin have allowed us to use photos of from their personal Blenko collection in this blog.
I am certain your response will allow the reader to keep looking among the Blenko items for the 'one ' her Mom was describing and will remind all of us to label our collectible or keep a photo journal to help with the identification.
