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.

ETSY do you know about Etsy? This was Donna N's question. Donna reports she uses Etsy more than EBay for Blenko and other WV & American Glass. " . . . the prices are very low."

For 300$ this incredible Blenko Glass hour glass is currently listed on Etsy.
I own this one, mine is not painted and the globes are honey colored it was made by Short Finley
and crew in the late 60s.
The large hour glass may be seen at the Blenko Glass Office in the lobby. The large ones don't often appear in on line sales.

What happen to the special vases Husted was making? I have been saving my money and I am not going to Milton in June so I can save even more money. When will we have photos of the new Husted vases?
Was this a spam?

I have the very small one it is about 18 inches high. I bought it from ' Mr. Red ' 2 or 3 years ago
Mine is stained honey oak with honey colored glass.
Mr. P will enjoy using this as a grill timer.
