Can you help ID this glass?
As a NC native I grew up with an awareness and appreciation for Blenko glass. Now, many years later, as an upstate NY antiques dealer I always have an eye out for it.
Last week I bought this floor vase and would love some more info about it. As I start to research it, its looking like it may be more rare than I originally thought.
Sorry I don’t have a better picture of it at this time. The vase measures 26” tall and is in excellent condition with its original Blenko paper label.
Any info or resources you have for me would be very much appreciated.
