Harry Thompson - Another Great Blenko Craftsman

Photos of Airtwist glasses - can you identify? Photo of Harry Thompson and Harry Thompson and his young son. Harry Thompson Former Blenko Craftsman.

Can you identify this airtwist? Apparently neither Larry of Serenity Glass Or Damon of Vintage modern could, but I'm betting some Blenko Collector will have the key to this mystery. Your comments.

Larry and his wife Bev are helping us prepare a HARRY THOMPSON page on the http://www.blenkoproject.org/ website did you or your relative work for BLENKO GLASS? If so ssend your photos, your bio etc to theblenkoproject@aol.com so we might document the work.

Hillary, Bev and our friend Jo have went through our notes and are ready to send a short version of bio. Here are photos of an air twist compote next to 489 for size comparison that nether Damon nor Larry from Tex can identify, It very old because the bottom is worn and there are very fine scratches in the bowl as if it had been cleaned a lot. Its 9in tall and 7in across. Thanks Larry T.
