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.

PM SALES - Purple Moon Estate Sale

I'm posting this without Mr. Chuck's approval, I don't think he'll mind that I'm inviting all of you to this estate sale.
See the 5929L this lovely piece of Blenko Glass is a part of the estate.
If you're a collector and you don't have a 5929L I'm certain you share my strong desire to own several. In my collection are three smaller 5929s. This 5929L is on my 'must have' but can't afford list.
You won't want to miss this estate sale.

Purple Moon http://www.purplemoon.com/ located in Charleston, WV
www.pmestatesales.com for the estate sale listing.

is conducting an estate sale Feb 6 & 7 - check out the listing on their website. A large selection of furniture and collectibles. This Blenko Glass vase caught my eye !

Dang on shame the weather is so bad. Just raining here right now and tomorrow I go test to be a Cenus worker, should the roads get treated. Last snow they took care of the 64/77/79 interstate and did not do much on the senondary roads. I still say people have known for years how bad it gets on these roads when it snow. Use your head. 12.50 will get you out the door when you live in Kanawha county. Just five to ten weeks worth of work, I will have money to buy one Blenko item anyway. I know that the Benz is in the shop. Please excuse me only why are you so interested in the Benz? To the person who wonders why the artist don't go to DC, why? It is so fast pace and mass confusion at times. I love the area where I was born and raised up North, only you have to look beyond all the people for the beauty. We talk fast, drive fast and live days ahead so you have to plan for time with your self and everyone runs around like a chicken with its head cut off. Humbug! Here in less populated area of the States we work, and enjoy a more slower pace way of life. You can drive into the mountains and capture the beauty with out the stress, which gives an artist time to dream of that next creation. My mind is working on what to plant. I want to plant some food for the animals up on the hill we always have to weedeat. It was bad for the wildlife this year and we are fussing at the electric power. I say they got all year to go trim the trees. Cabin Creek still needs alot of trees trim. The people who own all this land where the coal is, do not trim their trees either. Rog has trees to cut down so they won't fall on the house. I find in the old school business world they were taught not to fix nothing unless it was broke. Just like toyota. Being an old foundry/factory work somebody did not catch those bad parts or the mistake on the blueprint. I think of the times I got to go put sprinkler systems together and guess who found what was wrong with the parts. LOL. Should of seen those white collar workers, no offense to anyone,all men gather around wanting to say that is not it. Well I have an eye and should I have an interest I can figure what is worng out. Remember everything only goes together one way to work. Gonna call Kate and my sister to see how much snow they got on Saturday evening. Will get real report. Say alittle prayer, peace to your homes, Roxie

Expensive ?
Have you been to the glasshouse website?
Your purchase was a real steal of a deal.

chitrakahn said...

I saw no other glass in the link, did the household have only one piece of american glass?

amodernguy said...

Lenox Solitaire actually - 9 places settings + serving pieces in PRISTINE condition.

As for Alex - email me at midcentury@thepurplemoon.com and we can talk.

Re: Eternal
are the serving pieces priced with
place settings or seperately?

Anonymous said...

What time does it open and an exact address that I can put into the GPS is helpful

Anonymous said...

Is there a 3rd day with 1/2 prices?

Anonymous said...

I don't claim to know china
but I think eternal is gold
and soltaire is silver
so the serving pieces would not work for you..

Is out of the country but I'll phone to let him know about the tall coveted blenko.

It's a Mercedes Benz owned by an Abu

oil billionaire (naturally).

Featuring the newly developed V10 quad

with 1,600 horsepower and 2800nm of

0-100km/h in less than 2secs, 1/4 mile in 6.89 secs

running on biofuel.

I'm sending a photo to theblenkoprojectaol.com for you to send to your dad
so he wont feel bad about his accident.
perhaps you can sell Blenko to the Benz dealer?

Dr.Bob been watching the weather all day. I know that you are getting blasted as is my daughter in Virginia. It has started to lay on the road there. I am glad that Manchin did the State of Emergency. People do need to stay off the road. We will have mud slide and are in a flood warning. The front yard is like a swap. Roxie
