Hillary I have seen the blue peace before, harry gave a peace like it to my ant and she used it for an ashtray. I think these peaces were made in the 40s just before winslow.Most people think blenko was shut down during ww2 but harry did not go in the service. I have also found out that there are posably 2 airtwist cains still arround that he made at blenko. If i can locate them i will try to get pictures. I liked the expression on your face when you broke off the pipe. Larry Thompson CONTROLLED BUBBLE
