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.

828 M

Sally,
Your glass may be an 828M designed by Don Shepherd
for Blenko Glass.
See photo ( attached) this glass is available often on line for less than the $225 you paid.
It should not have bubbles in the glass.
We could not publish the photo you sent, Blogger requires a clear photo.
To my knowledge this swirl was not made in a decanter. I've checked the Blenko materials I own, if anyone has a photo of a decanter with this swirl please send to theblenkoproject@aol.com. Sally states: "' the seller had 3 pieces, I bought this one for $225, he wanted $400 for a matching decanter."

Sally, if you have photos of the decanter please send to theblenkoproject@aol.com . HJH

Blenko Glass vase in the Balloons specialty line. Designed in 1982 by Don Shepherd and made for two years. This is round balloon shaped vase in antique green with "tangerine" swirled stripes that appear amber brown on the greenish glass. The lip is shaped like the end of a balloon. This vase measures 9 and 1/2 inches tall and about 7 inches wide at the widest
Phani we own this in 3 sizes.

stupid stupid stupid
if they offered to sell you a decanter the glass is a reproduction by Chinese not a
828 as the Blenko didn't make this in a decanter.
