Don't you mean 5929L?

It is 5929L, and comes in seabreeze, which is the color in the photo, as well as cobalt, topaz and desert green, which is a gorgeous gradient from green to yellow.

The 2011 catalog I bought calls it a 5949L
perhaps hillary is using this or the Blenko website to label this item.

Anyone else having trouble with comments?
We saw this one during the weekend sale, last weekend.
It is big and bold and beautiful!
Way to go Blenko Glass.

Don't you even read comments before posting them? This decanter is a 5929L, not a 5949L. Please correct your post so that you give people factual information.

Who designed this iconic piece?

hilary's posted photos of this one many times and she says Wayne Husted designed this iconic piece and most all the other iconic pieces at Blenko

I was not happy that Blenko released this copy of the original Husted 1959 design. They assured me that it was marked as a copy but as an owner of an original it's very disturbing.
