Blenko Photos from Texas

Texas Blenko . . . .need I say more?

Hi Doc,
Hope you are getting enough rest these days. With the busy schedule
you outlined I am sure it is tough getting everything you do
accomplished. Just wanted to share a couple more photos for you to
post to the blog. First photo is of several different designs that
incorporate Crystal cased vases with weighted bottoms. From left to
right a Myers designed #6723 in Olive Green. Sheppard design #7525 in
Olive Green and finally a #9619 in Antique Green.

The second photo is of a pair of Myers designed #705's in Olive Green
and Turquoise filled with the latest blooms from the meadows around
our home. The Monarch Butterflies are making their way south and have
graced us with quite the migratory display this year.
Enjoy,
Bruce

???? is the green decanter old
and did it once have a stopper?
Beautiful, I saw this in a local shop with stopper for $350.
I may be forced to purchase. It was identified as Cambridge Glass
at the time I thought it looked Blenko.

I wanna move to Texas so I can shop with you
and perhaps Phani and I can meet to
bemoan being left frequently by our spouse / girl-boyfriend.
Life ain't it a bitch. We all want to be somewhere we aren't or have something we don't or find something for nothin.

I'm not sure about that middle vase, the Sheppard 7525. The shape is right, but in the second Pina book of catalog reprints, it is shown and noted that it was only made in the turquoise and green (or orange, I can't tell from the photo) swirl. That doesn't mean it didn't get made in the solid olive green, it just wasn't a "catalog" color. It was always a vase, and didn't have a stopper.
