BLENKO IDENTIFICATION! Deadline Dec 30th!
A Blenko Blog reader recently purchased vintage BLENKO at an estate sale. In an effort to identify his purchases he has offered a reward if we will assist him in identification.
Remember, you do not need to be an expert on BLENKO - anyone with a computer, access to the library, or online reference could identify the glass and receive the reward!
There are 4 ash trays, 1 lamp, 4 pitchers, 1 large goblet with twisted stem, a decanter with stopper,a vase with color design. The owner wishes to know who designed each, and as much information about each item as possible. We now have pictures of ALL the items for you to identify (see below).
On his behalf we are offering 2 gifts. Both signed BLENKO .... one for the first correct response before December 26thand the other for the email with the most information about the items and correctly identifying the items. Please email responces to THEBLENKOPROJECT@AOL.COM . Thank you in advance for your response.
