No, it isn't a blanko, but it is Blenko. Item 9726 designed by Matt Carter in 1997.

While beautiful this item would not be considered rare.
Matt Carter designed this and was responsible for the matted coloring glass in a number of items.
The design is classic and can be found in many other lines.
This maybe more info than you need.
