Heart of Glass - Blenko Glass

Blenko Glass is a West Virginia treasure that spans generations. Nothing symbolizes the state of West Virginia better or more beautifully than Blenko Glass. We will discuss current and former craftsmen and designers and how important it is that Blenko and West Virginia glass be appreciated and valued by the younger generation.

a recent post asked for ID help with what was thought to be a Blenko Rialto piece. I think Bruce's analysis is correct. Its possible that the piece is Rialto but the Blenko etch on the base would help. The stopper should be ruby and shaped like the stopper in the picture I've enclosed. This picture is a ruby 6127 vase with stopper. It was often sold with the Regal series but is not listed in the catalog as such. Hope this helps.
