Water Bottle


Hilary

I recently bought 12 Blenko water bottles at an estate sale. Four are signed by Richard Blenko and all are colorful.

They do not have a Blenko pontail or mark on the bottom -- the one you stated we should be looking for. They do have a silver label that says Blenko.

Can I send a photo and will you tell me the value of my glass or if it is or is not Blenko?

The waterbottle is made in a mold, the bottom is smooth. Waterbottles aren't know to increase in value, exceptions are the ones with (1) handle (2) different spouts (3) various colors - rose - charcoal . . . .

Hope this helps.

the one thing they do I do'nt agree with is bringing someone in letting them make glass and lay-off an employee that has been there 28 years that can make the same product just as good he's just not as popular.

a dozen waterbottles is 12 X 50 right.
should be worth at a minimum the initial investment.

Dear chit,
who's guessing and I don't need to tell half truths. I just had 3 current employees leave my house. My info came straight from them. I don't use names so they don't in trouble with the Estrogen crew. If you really know as much as you say you know exactly who I am talking about. Nothing I said is false.

silver label if it is silver can mean the bottles are old.

The labor board is a joke, they investigate, issue a directive then leave you high and dry. Six months later you lose our job.

IF THIS DID HAPPEN AS YOU SAY
RETURN TO LABOR BOARD AND THEN SEE AN ATTORNEY YOU COULD BE THE NEXT OWNER OF BLENKOs DEBT
