Blenko Lamps - A pair!

This is a set of 2 - what could be more perfect? Made in West Virginia - handcrafted Blenko Glass.The lamps pictured are available either on line or on ebay - - - when we receive photos of lamps currently available in the Milton Blenko Glass shop we'll publish. Ebay listing # 330355104710
The listing states:
These are 2 blenko lamps measuring 27" tall from the base to the top of the lamp. This is not including the actual light bulb part. 27" is just the glass lamp. the base is 11" maybe a little more as it is hard to get acurate with a yard stick. the lamps sit on top of a wood base(maybe teak?) The wood is great. Felt bottom on one, no felt bottom on the other. The finials are 4". These are Beautiful and awesome. They work great, howeverr with vintage lighting you want to have it checked out before use.

We bought this exact lamp in Milton last year for $175 each and felt we got a good deal. They do sell lamps in Milton. We don't go often, but they have lamps each time we visit.

Yes! The lamps are nice. Not as dark as my colbalt blue but nice. sweet Doc thanks. I would like to have an important job. Had my life been alittle different and I would not of done the get married and have a baby,who knows what I would of become. I am planning on going job hunting after the 15th of November. Will be going to stay with Lilly and Leah for afew days while Mom and Dad do the annversary celebrating. I think it makes five years. They are renting a cabin in the North-western part of WVa. Want to say Buckhannon/?. I will say that 175.00 is a good price for a Blenko lamp. I love my lamp and the lighting is wonderful, you would think the lamp to tall, wrong.The tallnest of the lamp with a shade keeps the bright light of the bulb from getting into your eyes. God bless, Roxie
