Patriot Line - Husted

Patriot Line byWayne Husted for BLENKO
Yesterday I did Photos of this line at the requst of reader Margie Hale. Its a beautiful collection, I have not seen the entire collection - other than in photos. Tammy Kosla was kind enough to send the original advertisement and also photos of a complete set from her personal collection. Tammy Kosla and her husband John were founding members of the Blenko Collectors Society.
My glass mentor Tim Alonzo in Texas tells me Patriot Line was a very limited production, as is
difficult to find, meaning also expensive. GOOD LUCK!
PROVIDED BY TAMMY KOSLA THE FOUNDER OF BLENKO COLLECTOR SOCIETY THANK YOU
"The Patriot Line was designed by Wayne Husted. This was advertised only in an insert that was included in the 2002 catalog.

Wayne started working on this while John and I were down at Blenko on Sept. 11th 2001."

The photo on the wall is of 2 hot air balloons. The space shuttle is called fittingly enough, 'Patriot' and the flag is called, 'America One'.

The pitcher & tumblers were made in conjunction with America One and made in an extremely limited run at Blenko in 2006.

For more info on the balloons and the special Blenko glass please visit: http://www.usflagballoon.com
