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.

Hillary, Back in mid January we tried to hit the antique shops in Charleston area, found the shops on D st. behind the mound but google sent me to the wrong block trying to find the Purple Moon and we never found it . What is the best way to get to it. Found another cane in old central city Huntington, Dave said it might have been made by him and Jessy mainly because the collor looks like blenko saphire and is ground on the end the way they did it. Thanks Larry T.

West Virginia Glass Vignette for Valentine's Day




Vintage West Virginia glass is widely available in Greensboro's antique stores. Most of the Fenton hobnail pieces in the photo are from Thrill of the Hunt (3122 Battleground Ave #B). For each holiday, we decorate our entrance hallway with a collection of vintage glass and arts and crafts items. We made the heart stopper and LOVE embellishment from polymer clay to fit with the Valentine's Day theme. Do you enjoy making holiday vignettes? Do you like antique West Virginia glass? Happy Valentine's Day, tomorrow. We hope you plan something special.
I WENT TO THE BLOG SITE IT IS A NICE BLOG EVERYONE SHOULD VISIT IS GREENBORO BEFORE OR AFTER CHARLOTTE? I WAS ON THE WEST COAST TOO LONG.

Thanks for the endorsement Mountain Rita. However, you have to go to the original website to see the picture (February 13 WV glass; February 14 North Carolina Glass).

Greensboro is two hours north east of Charlotte, a little bit closer to WV than Charlotte. Replacements, LTD is near Greensboro. Replacements sells a lot of WV class on the secondary market and we've heard that Dean Six comes to Replacements a lot.

At Heart of Glass we consider Dean Six the guru of gurus of WV and American Glass.
Do you know about the Weston Museum? Its worth a drive up to WV if you like glass.
