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.

Request . .

A number of you have been kind enough to write asking about my sofa / end table / lamp / 'hunt' well. . . . I continue to search for special items for my Columbus apartment. The item I am currently seeking is a CLOCK I'd like one similar to this photo. If you run across this beauty at a flea market or under priced at an estate sale. Speed dial me.
Most everyone has this to say about the items I want: " I gave this away in the early 80s."
Thanks for keeping your eyes open! hjh

Your decor taste and my son Saul's is identical. Do you favor the bubble and cigar lamps of the 60s he has reproductions and a source for inexpensive ($300) lamps and clocks I am sendng you his email address to theblenkoproject address and I'm sending a copy of this post to him.
My wife and I did not own these things they were too expensive for us in the 60s.

A little place couple doors up to the Indian resturant in downtown Charleston might have this, can't recall the name. I will check next week when I am in Charleston.

Did you try ebay?
Did you try the Milton Flea Market?
Did you try Iron Antique Mart?
Did you ask Sweet Doc? She seems to have the market cornered on vintage danish.

Purple Moon is the name of that shop - he moved to Capitol Street.
This shop does have most every item my heart desires - we recently bought a floor lamp - I'll post a photo soon!
If you love vintage BLENKO GLASS & or quality modern furniture check out Charleston West Virginia's Purple Moon.

Thank you my goal is to avoid reproductions if possible - I'm holding out for vintage.
Purple Moon in Charleston also has the reproduction Bubble and Cigar Lamps and they are 'beautiful'.

You might not believe this
this one is available in Columbus for $350 right now.
I am email photo and address of shop. In running order but it has a cord to plug in.
Is there a reward for finding? A blenko vase in a new color?
