I do not know if this is blenko. My sister has a blue vase made just like that one. It does not look Blenko to me and if it is I am gonna bring it home with me. She collects BEARS. Must have almost all the beany baby bears except afew. Image a house of stuffed beans everywhere. Baskets and poles and just sitting around. I can image a house full of Blenko glass. Windows with shelves full of the BIG bright colored Blenko, Only to each his own. Her first favorite toy was a stuff Smokey the Bear, seems know one knows what happened to him. Me, it was a pair of bright red rubber boots so that I could go down to the barn and feed the cows some of that honey oats. I hope everyone is up for the game on Saturday, none need to worry, will be staying where WVU will be watched. My favorite numbers are 22, 2 and 9. My be afew more and Brown is doing agood job. Brown is so tall it makes him look like he is moving in slow motion next to the other players. Will say he is doing a very good job not getting saked. Go WVU! Heard they got some recuirts that are Big fellows for 2010. Now the years have really flew by. I will be 55, Tuesday 09/22/54. Pray this year brings good to my life and the blessing of health. My need/ want list is this old house finished. My granny's old house in Charlestown, to remodel so that we can move home when Rog retires. Granny's house is almost as old as the one my sister lives in. Water Street in Charlestown one of the first streets. My dad's house was a store. Here that 79 and 81 will be joining. I will have to see if that will save me travel time. I go 64, 81,7,old 340 to Charlestown. Takes about five hours depending on how many times we have to stop. Well God Bless! Happy Blenko hunting, Roxie

what are your thoughts about this?
We own several of these bud vases, I always credited cambridge glass with this design.

Wedgewood, Waterford, most everyone does a budvase in this classic design.
The color makes me think this is a WV Glass vase.
