BLENKO GLASS - WV Birthday Collection

The West Virginia Birthday - Blenko Glass Item will be sold again on June 20th at BLENKO GLASS in Milton, West Virginia.

The design has not be unveiled - so it remains a secret until early June - then BLENKO will allow photos to be shown. I'm suggesting you mark the date on your calendar and make plans to be in line early - these one of a kind vases sell out within 2 hours of the store opening - and the line starts forming sometime before 6 am.

If you don't know about the WV Birthday Pieces check out http://www.blenkoproject.org/ or the Blenko Collectors sites.

Blenko West Virginia Birthday Pieces
One piece is made for each year of statehood starting in 1980. The pieces are an extremely limited production of how many years West Virginia has been a state. Example- 1980 only 117 pieces were produced. All are signed and numbered. West Virginia was the 35th state of the union and was incorporated June 20, 1863.
