Husted Tri Colored

I'm sending a photo of a Blenko item I'm buying from Internet.
Can you tell me if this comes in other colors? Id like to buy one of each.
As a new collector I want to buy only quality and then buy one in each color of the special items.
Thank you
To my knowledge this tri colored vase was produced in the late 50's designed by Husted and available only as shown. We'll post the question to readers, and if
other colors are available - you'll soon know.
Having a long term goal for your collection, will prevent over buying. May I ask if you belong to a collectors group? If not let me suggest you visit the West Virginia Museum of American Glass website, and research vintage Blenko on line prior to purchases.
Another suggestion is to purchase current Blenko - the prices are low - the quality is there and one can have immediate deliver and purchase the item in all available colors.
Happy Collecting.

This is not available in other colors.
It is a quality piece all collectors will want to own.
Suggestion from the Blenko Collector Buy Buy Buy
the prices are low, and its a buyers market. My NYC dealer is also having better than usual sells.
Don't be afraid to buy from a good dealer, you might pay more but you will get an item that is clean, labeled and you may buy with confidence.
For me time is a factor, I no longer have time to go out hunting for American Glass or even a good buy at Saks.

Lemley probably had to get that knife pulled out of his back they stuck in him.
