Mountaineer Auction,
You might want to swap stoppers on the decanters in the top picture to get them correct. The 5931 donut decanter takes the flatten ball stopper and the 6413 takes the cork shaped solid stopper.

Anonymous: Don't rely only on silver stickers for age of glass. Periodically, sheets of the silver stickers are for sale on Ebay.

Would anyone like to purchase a collection of signed Wayne Husted design sketches. I have photos of him drawing these designs. There is ten in the collection.

I agree... those stoppers need to be swapped. Would be a shame if they were sold the way they are in the pic.

chitrakahn, If you would like the TRUTH about any rumors you hear, I would suggest calling the managment at Blenko, who are very good at their jobs and working hard to keep Blenko open regardless of those who would like to see one of the few remaining glass blowing companies,a very old and respected business, close.
