Are you proud that I can tell?

NO! I didn't steal this photo from D Crane but you are correct in that usually the 'beautiful photos' I steal from on line are
Crane photos.
I'm in a 12 step program trying to reform myself.

I RECENTLY BOUGHT A BLENKO DECANTER,NO STOPPER,AT A LOCAL THRIFT STORE. I STOPPED AT THE FACTORY THIS PAST THURSDAY AND ASKED THE CLERK IF THEY HAD STOPPERS OR COULD MAKE ME ONE. SHE SAID NEITHER. THEY COULDN'T MAKE ONE BECAUSE IT WOULD INVOLVE USING A MOULD. I THEN, WENT TO OSBURN GLASS AND DAVE SAID HE WOULD MAKE ME ONE FREE HANDED. HE SAID THAT TYPE OF STOPPER IS EASY TO MAKE AND IT IS A "FREE HAND" STOPPER. RON OF HUNTINGTON

GOod to know - I'll pass along this information. Many emails about where to get stoppers / tops missing pieces.
Blenko is as you know a factory - and its more difficult to stop and produce single iems - I would think.
Although my experience has been if you can ask Rodney Wade he will attempt to help in all possible ways.

Great Work. I think I like the colors.

You THINK you like the colors - those colors are awesome...Im CERTAIN you would like them.
Drive over to BLENKO GLASS, Milton, WV and see the colors in person.
Photos can't describe or express the true beauty of these colors.
