West Virginia Janis' Photo
Title: VIKING GLASS IN A BLENKO WORLDOK, I don't usually brag about finding glass cheap; however, this little egg candy dish is my pride and joy-- sixty nine cents at the Goodwill Store last week. Maybe I was being rewarded for donating so much this month!!!I have no idea who made the jar or when it was made. It is the same color as Morgantown's Stiegel green, is about 6" tall and the slippery lid doesn't stay on very well. As a matter of fact, in the thrift store, the pieces were on different shelves. Here, it is photographed, an egg shape perched between two Viking green long- tailed birds (# 1312 candy dish and #1311 bird-only). Don't you think it would look interesting filled with white jelly beans?Let me know if you have ever seen anything like this or if you know about the piece.West Virginia Janis
