The plates were made in 1939 by the blenko people for mom and dad's wedding. they were used for thanksgiving dinner til we all graduated highschool, yes i graduated. The pinch glasses, creamer and cruet were aded to the table later.
Most of the air twist dad had given to family and i gathered it up.
The tangerine mugs were given to my oldest brother for his wedding.
Dad made several paperweights back in the controld buble days out of marine cristal with ruby and colbolt inside. The two in the picktures were made in the early 60's th show someone what would hold up under the heat of moltin glass.
The bell vase with colbalt foot is no.58 i am presuming that the ruby jug withe upside down handles is a end of day peace.
