Heart of Glass - Blenko Glass

Blenko Glass is a West Virginia treasure that spans generations. Nothing symbolizes the state of West Virginia better or more beautifully than Blenko Glass. We will discuss current and former craftsmen and designers and how important it is that Blenko and West Virginia glass be appreciated and valued by the younger generation.

June 20, 2003. Blenko West Virginia Birthday. This one is shaped like a 'moonshine or whiskey bottle' I heard this description from a Cabin Creek lady. Several people in line to purchase were not Birthday Collectors, they were folk who saw the photo...liked the jug and wanted to purchase.

It's blue with gold handle. hjh

Thank you!
I have 2 much glass. My recommendation would be that you offer this wonderful Birthday piece to either BLENKO GLASS for their display (phone Christie at 743 9081) or WV Cultural Center - Charleston, WV. Both places has collection that are incomplete - one of my goals is to have complete sets for these 2 locations.
Please consider donating so that your glass might be enjoyed by others.
