West Virginia Glass Makers

Can you identify the maker of these two items? Are they by the same person/company?
Clue#1 They were made in West Virginia. Clue#2 They were not made by Blenko Glass Co.

Cannot identify but they are very pretty. To me they look different,one someone took time to make the other looks like who ever made it was in a hurry. Do know a new place you can get Blenko with your flowers. Found a nice flower shop in Malden,WV., that has Blenko glass and other glass from WV. They also have grapevine reefs that caught my eye. Real nice little shop, I was very surprised and will be going back. Plus the employees were very friendly and I liked that. I am interested in seeing what this year's WVa, piece looks like. See ya soon, Roxie

If you have not seen it get the magazine good article for you and Blenko. Very positive comments.
