WV Birthday 1994

This unusual, textured pitcher matches the 93 in color and form. Another Hank Adams design.

Very collectible, not easy to find. I've seen this one in a South Charleston shop for $550. My friend Ann Wood always has the 94' on her dining room table with flowers (she does not collect Blenko or Birthday), she just loves the color purple and likes Hank Adams designs.

Purple and gold, not exactly West Virginia colors (blue/gold) but what my better half would call 'a charming combination.'

I love purple and gold, use to be my high school colors the panthers of Charlestown, WV. My next favorite colors are blue and gold. GO WVU!
