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.

Blenko 6513


HI Hillary
The first photo shows a pair of Myers designed heavy crystal cased vases in Turquoise and Peacock. These are Blenko 6513's produced by Blenko from 1965-68. I stumbled upon both of these in the past six months as mislists on ebay and paid only $20 for each. The second photo is a closeup to show the casing in more detail. The second pair is a couple of Blenko's more recent designs that were purchased at a signing event for both of my girls. Each was signed by Richard with their names as well. I believe these are both Hank Adams designed. The left is a 5206 in Azure with Celery lip and a 4106 in Celery with Cobalt lip.
Enjoy

I think they are beautiful too. Nice and the older Blenko. I for some reason can tell the difference. Where has everyone been? Roxie
