1987 - Blenko West Virginia Birthday

The Basket - Sometimes Called Ladies Bonnet (don't ask me why?). This is one of my favorites. It is very simple. Crystal glass with a cobalt blue ribbon. These are difficult to find, as the handle was broken, and also because people liked and used them.

1987 Blenko West Virginia Birthday simple, elegant, functional.
