Is this BLENKO?

Can we help this reader identify her glass? Below is her photo and letter. hjh

I'm wondering if you could help me identify this piece. Is it Blenko? I appreciate any help you might offer. Kindly,Donna K

This is not Blenko Glass.
It make be WV Glass but not Blenko, I also showed this to two local MD area dealers who agree it is not Blenko.
Hope this helps.

Sorry Dr. Bob but this is a Blenko 627L in Jonquil crackle. Looks like it will make a wonderful addition to someones collection.

Dr Bob you are very wrong on this.
Exactly the same piece I bought from the NYC dealer Glasslady promotes.
It is Blenko.
You and your MD (maryland) dealers need to study more.
Or else pay us west coast folk to buy for you.
