Where to Find Blenko Lamps ? (continued)

Several readers (Matt, Alex, and Clara) wrote to ask if we could help them find Blenko Lamps. We wrote to Blenko Glass for photos of lamps currently available in the Milton gift shop - until this information and the photos arrive - I'll be publishing information about lamps available on the web or in any antique or flea market. Do you have lamps available for purchase? If so send the photo and info to theblenkoproject@aol.com together we can assist these new collectors with finding great Blenko Lamps.

This is an aprox. 31 inch tall Blenko lamp in green crackle. It does not have any chips or repairs. Sits on the original base and has the original finial and lampshade. The harp is adjustable. The cord is also original and has duct tape holding the end plug together. The end of the plug is cracked. It does work but I would not use it until the end was replaced.
