Collection of Glass Animals

Hillary, I collect glass animals. I bought a clear rabbit about 5 inches with a Blenko sticker ( silver). Can you publish photos of other rabbits from Blenko and WV?

My recommendation re: what glass animals were made in WV?
This is a difficult question - many glass workers made and still make small animals during their lunch hour - often as gifts for family or other workers. Animals listed as part of a company line would appear in their catalog. The American Glass Museum in Weston has the largest and most extensive collection of WV Glass catalogs.
Blenko Glass made a limited edition ( 2 colors) glass Bunny last year (see photos). Fenton sometimes offers animals. Check website and catalogs. Good luck!
