Solomon I didn't know but the Texas Collector did -
It's a paperweight designed by Joel Myers. Even though it looks ruby, it is probably tangerine. There was an entire line of these paperweights. There was a Ram, Horse, Bear, Owl, Fish and a Snowman. The upcoming Blenko Collectors Newsletter "The Blowpipe" has an excellent article on Blenko paperweights in the next issue written by Karin Alonzo a Texas Collector and VP of the BLENKO COLLECTORS. I recommend joining the BCS - everyone should - its inexpensive - the newsletter alone is worth the cost of membership....and you become part of a group ...a group of people who have passion! Seinfield says Fall in LOVE - have PASSION for something or everything in your life! Start now with BLENKO!.

OK
Let's set the record
straight.
I am NOT FAIR
and I am NOT missing HORMONES!

Without planning I've following I've followed
Jerry Seinfield Rules for Living
1) Work your butt off
2) Pay attention- learn from everyone and everything all the time
3) FALL in LOVE - with your street, your school - have PASSION for LIFE! In my case...it's BLENKO GLASS AND WEST VIRGINIA!
WVUGUY07, perhaps someday
I'll find the Prince, for now
it's Blenko!

My mother who has passed away, had a Joel Myers blenko glass numbered piece like the ones you have pictured in the "sexy Exotic..." section -- it's the shape of a woman, her head is the stopper, and the base is her dress. It's lime green-ish. I didn't realize it was a collectors item, and I fear I may have given it to "good-will". I'll have to go over to her house and hunt for it. Maybe I just put it away somewhere. I stumbled across your picture quite accidentally looking for vintage images of "witches". (go figure?) I recognized the vase, and thought I'd investigate. Any advice if I find it? How valuable is it?
