1982 - Blenko Glass - WV Birthday

1982 - Blenko Glass - WV Birthday

A photo of the 1982 Blenko Glass - West Virginia Birthday

This was designed by Don Shepard who was at the time the Blenko Glass designer.

The item is crystal with a swirl of cobalt blue at the top (to represent the water in WV)- it has the mountains in the bottom to represent the mountains of West Virginia

Many people think this simple piece is one of the most lovely. hjh

Fish bowl was the my first thought - it looks like a fish bowl from the 50s
a beautiful obviously too expensive fish bowl.
I'll take 2.
