Blenko Drinking Glasses and Bar Ware

I broke several Blenko glasses, these are very old. They are bar ware glasses crystal with a circle of ruby.
Can I replace these? Does Blenko still make glasses and what is the cost?

Blenko catalogue states 2 styles of water glasses are currently in production. Photos below. Price is $36 from the catalogue may be less at the Visitors Center in Milton, W.Va.
My parents own a couple dozen of the bar ware glasses you mentioned. Today I wrote to Blenko to ask if they are still being made, and if they have available photos.
Check back for the answer.
