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.

Ashtrays have always been a part of Blenko’s
production from the 1930s thru today.
Blenko's ashtrays have been unique. One of
Winslow Anderson’s ashtray designs won the
Good Design award in 1950. Believe it not
there are hard-to-find Blenko ashtrays. The trilobe
bowl #5831 is one and the 5722 is another
hard to find design. Blenko’s ashtray designs
always have a bit of panache!
