Blenko Pitchers - How many do you own?


Most every Sunday I use a pitcher in this design for OJ - the one I own is a deep emerald green. hjh

Hillary:

I’ve been digging through my old photos, here are a few at random. The two 939 pitchers were bought as a wedding present for some friends who have decorated in plum and turquoise. Couldn’t have scored a better gift if I’d tried. The 1964 vase series A – E, and some of the 1968 airtwist paperweights are among my favorites. The Kaleidoscope decanter was bought at a preview in 2002 at Tammy Kosla’s Blenko Celebration. The stained glass panels were on display at the first Blenko Collectors Convention, all done in antique glass.

Hope that helps,
Thanks to Diane for this photos . All photos are welcome. Please send your photos and your stories of Blenko Glass or WV Glass to theblenkoproject@aol.com

Oh I own too many, blenko multiples much like a rabbit population.
Today I counted 14 then decided to stop counting. If it doesn't have a handle I'm not calling it a pitcher.
