Because you Ask


Because you asked - photo of tequila sunrise water vase.
Reader from Missouri says she has over 20 different colors of water vase - wants to know HOW MANY DIFFERENT Colors Blenko has made in the water vase.
Also she wants to see the tequila sunrise - as she knows she's missing this one.
She also wants to buy WV Birthday Pieces - early ones -
and any Water Vases she doesn't have.
Can you help?
write to theblenkoproject@aol.com and put Bridgett's Glass
in the RE:
Thanks. Bridgett I'll send an email to Rodney Wade and Christy one or both of them may have the answer about the number of colors.
Water bottles are a unique item at Blenko - great to collect - they aren't expensive - they look good on display - and you may not know this but sometimes they have ' handles,' and other alterations to the original shape.

Thanks now I await others to find the items I can't.
Excellent plan.

This photo was published in 2007
I found the water bottle shortly after at an antique store in Huntington.
Good Luck to Bridgett.

Hilary, & Bridgett
I found this little gem of a water bottle in Washington Pa.
when I returned for my 30th Med
School Reunion. Paid $55 and felt very happy about the cost and the find.
Blenko is under valued, now is the time to aggressively hunt for the items you want.

Bridget,
someone sent an email saying Dixie's of Texas has this water bottle. I can recommend this seller, as most of the Texas Collectors know him (Billy) and he has good knowledge of Blenko.
Good Luck!
