Heart of Glass - Blenko Glass

Blenko Glass is a West Virginia treasure that spans generations. Nothing symbolizes the state of West Virginia better or more beautifully than Blenko Glass. We will discuss current and former craftsmen and designers and how important it is that Blenko and West Virginia glass be appreciated and valued by the younger generation.

Charcoal #6210 decanter and #928 Melon vase in Ruby

I must confess the 6 photos of tempting glass were from Bruce and his family.
Here's a copy of his note. I know you all enjoyed viewing these photos as much as I have.
Nothing photographs like BLENKO and if you have a good eye and a good camera its even nicer! Bruce has both!
Hi HIllary,
I broke out my daughters camera and shot a few more photos for you to use on the blog. The first is a group of 723's in Wheat, Turquoise, Tangerine, and Olive. The second is of the #555 and #5611 Knob-handled pitchers in Crystal. The third photo is of a group of '61 Charcoal pieces. The fourth is a group of 64E's in Tangerine , Peacock and Turquoise. The fifth is of a Turquoise #653 and a Chestnut #6530-S. The sixth is of the Charcoal #6210 decanter and #928 Melon vase in Ruby. These last two are recent additions from successful Ebay auctions. Hope this is helpful for stimulating interest. Enjoy!

I'll try to get a list of quality ebay sellers later this year and post them so new buyers will
have confidence in purchasing items labeled Blenko. hjh
