More Blenko Ebay Finds

Hi Doc,
Just wanted to share this photo of a couple older pieces of Blenko. The Amethyst piece is a #375 that I just picked up mislisted. It is actually one of a pair that I ended up sharing with another local collector. The Jonquil piece appears to be a #488 which shows up in the Eige book only as an ad.

You have to tell me about your photostudio or where would you take the pictures of the glass items. I have not tried taking portrait images yet but I am thinking about building a small area which could have a lot of light, sorta like a studio thing in my apt for taking pictures of small items and eventually grow bigger to take nice portraits of my family, friends etc..

Great work as always and I am sure my girlfriend should be excited when she looks at these pictures.
