Can we help to identify this glass?

Does anyone know the year, the designer, etc.
If you do - please comment.

I have a question, two questions.
What happen to the story about Husted and Variations
and what happen to Tammie Kosla's story of the beginning of BCS?
Just curious.

New collector here - more money than knowledge.
Go ask Bruce or Diane or Elle or Karen . . .those with knowledge.

Using the Eason Eige "Blenko Glass 1930-1953" reference book I have I will make the following identification of what the items appear to be. Starting with the tape measure and proceeding clockwise you have a 925P 19" diameter plate. These are usually assosiated with the companion punch bowl and serve as an underdish for the bowl. The next piece is a 3617 18" "Sunday Night Supper Plate". The bowl appears to be either an oversized 901 9 1/2" Large fruit/salad bowl or a 436 12" bowl. The later has a foot to the bowl which I can not make out if your piece has one or not. The pitcher is a 939P. As for designer or year of manufacture you might want to try the blenkocollectors webpage and research colors to venture a guess as to a date of manufacture. All look to be wonderful examples of Chartreuse.
