BLENKO Orange?

Reader Writes? Are there many different ORANGES that Blenko makes? Name them.

Well. I'm not the Blenko Color Expert. I did a bit of research, the expert is Dreama Wood who is a member of the Blenko Collectors Club and she has listed on BLenko Collectors Four website all the Blenko Colors for us to use as guides.

* I'll get a photo of the 'orange' in the Bayliss line when I'm at Blenko next weekend called creamcycle'.

The creamcycle (sp) isn't listed its a new 'kinda' orange color - BLENKO calls ORANGE Tangerine. Sometimes there is a variation in the color. IF a reader knows of other ORANGE BLENKO SHADES please write to share the knowledge. Thanks. Photos of Tangerine from Blenko Collectors Four. Visit the website to see all the lovely Blenko Colors and for other BLENKO Information.

These are spectacular items, can BGC make these today? There is a market today for this vintage glass art style.

Could not agree more Mr. Andre.
Vintage glassware is what I purchase, like some of the 2007 line, but otherwise I purchase things made before 1970.
Reproductions would be welcome.

Boys and Girls lets not fight over colors. according to the Pina Cool 50s & 60s glass book the color Tangerine covered a wide range of colors from the current Tangerine, to an almost amber, to a color similar to the current "Dreamcicle" (spelling taken out of the current catalog. I am not an expert on color as there are variations in every batch due to temperature of the batch, weather conditions, purity of the raw materials, and various other conditions. Study, do the best you can do, BUY American where you can, Support your local Blenko dealer, (we are starving in this economy) have fun and enjoy the beauty of American made glassware such as but not limited to Blenko.
