We will discuss current and former craftsmen and designers and how important it is that Blenko and West Virginia glass be appreciated and valued by the younger generation.

Hi Hillary

I am in a quandary here. I could not decide which one of the following photos to send you. I picked up two of these pitchers recently which complement two I had already. Feel free to choose one or all for the blog. I will identify the first photo and if you choose another shot you will just have to transpose the correct color and design number to identify the pitchers in the other photos. From left to right is the Nickerson designed #727 in Turquoise (8 1/2"), #729 in Tangerine ( 11 1/2"), #729 in Crystal Crackle, and a #729 in Olive Green.


Bruce Thank you, I couldn't decide either - both are terrific. We'll publish both.

Do you people use your glass? Photos of the glass in use or at least how you display in your homes?
For this much glass you'd need a warehouse.
Everything is large and so garish in color.
If you have photos of glass in use or in a home display I would like to see this.
Mr. Bruce is your glass on display in your home? If so can you share some photos of this?

my glass is in the garage in boxes
with photos on each box.
So my sons won't automatically give it to goodwill.
