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.

Ebony - Black Glass - BLENKO

These photo are of my very small collection of EBONY GLASS. Ruby and EBONY are for me special 'Blenko' colors. hjh

Your glass isn't like the catalog
was it made just for you?

Dr Bob
The catalogue shown is 99
my glass would have been in later catalogues - trust me I have no
'unique' made for me Blenko (only in my dreams).

Very nice Hilary.
Do they continue to make the
waterbottle in ebony?
How many colors does that water bottle come in?

This comment is for Sol, I read this blog weekly, often daily and Hilary I learn from the Blog is a full time student, does the Blog, collects a number of things, is physically active, has a dog, a family, friends and a life.
Sol you need to get a life.
Forgive me Hilary for this non- Blenko comment.

but black is absence of color

No color.

In Spanish, "Sol" means "sunshine." Blenko glass looks fabulous with sunshine streaming through it. "Sol," we will call you "Sunshine" and you will live up to your name by bringing sunshine into our lives. Please do not wait for ever-busy Hillary to tell you what kind of Blenko to collect. Log on to that Blenko catalog URL and buy something that makes you feel, well, SUNNY! Hillary is a delightful, Sunny, professional and deserves for us to mind our manners on her blog.

Here is the first place to go to start making your Blenko choices.


Let us know what you buy. AdiĆ³s, Sunshine.
