Blenko Glass Cactus - 95-96

Hillary, I'm sending a photo of my blenko glass cactus - see the B sign on the cactus its a gold and red? What can you tell me about it? Is it worth anything?

Amanda, Your photo wouldn't upload to Blogger - however, I found on the Blenko Collectors Four ( an excellent Blenko Glass resource web page) a photo of a very similar cactus. The Blenko Collectors Four says " Trey Gott is responsible for this design and the year was 95-96.
Re: Value? The after market for all glass is depressed at this time.

correction to your post. Trey designed the Cactus series for the 1996 catalog. The color is Desert Green.

Red to gold would be amberina would it not?
The one is the photo is dessert sand which is also a
color that fades into another.

1996? Trey Gott was at Blenko?
Is this comment a typo?

Trey was at Blenko for a short period of time. He and Matt Carter shared design duties for the 1996 catalog.

Why did Trey Gott stay such a short time?
Is there a designer in house at this time?

We flew in to Huntington
bought a ton of glass and loved
each and every moment we were in WVa.
Couldn't find the resturant you suggested - but ate at Subway
and the Mexican joint.
Found no place for a mixed drink? Is the whole state dry?
Next visit I'll plan for this.

Blenko Museum is not Blenko Collector Four.
Blenko Museum is a fantasy museum a front for a vintage glass seller
and buyer.
The Blenko Four Collector is a group of men and women who have good collections of Blenko and sometimes sell to improve their collection.
Good information available from both.
