Husted Shot Glass

LEMON is my favorite Blenko Color - I saw a Lemon Lamp at Winslow Anderson's home several years and fell imediately in love the color LEMON!

If you are new to collecting the Husted Shot Glass is sought after in any color!

Shot glass stopper decanter with dramatically elongated neck, designed in 1960, made in this color for only 2 years, #6027 in Lemon, 16.25in.H x 6in.D.

I love absolutely love D Craine's photos, each time you publish one, I go to his website and spend the day.
Tell us more about him, how did he come to know so much about Blenko?
Also why?

More Husted photos are required and an update on Husted, what is he currently up to? Retirement or a project?
If its a project, can you post photos and a brief story?
Husted built Blenko. In my book, Blenko Factory - WH and Husted were the perfect combination.
