1985 West Virginia Birthday - Blenko

This one is often described as a 'shell' or 'clam' it's blue and gold of course for the state colors. The 1985 is not as difficult to find - I think perhaps because people fail to see the beauty of this piece. Another Don Shepard design. Photo from Blenko Collectors see Blenko Collectors Four web site for additonal photos and lots of info about BLENKO.
