Heart of Glass - Blenko Glass

Blenko Glass is a West Virginia treasure that spans generations. Nothing symbolizes the state of West Virginia better or more beautifully than Blenko Glass. 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 Doc,
Sending on a few more shots from this week. A nice couple of Don Shepherd designed decanters from his "Barnwood" series. The smaller is a #7915 S (10") with it's big brother a #7915 L (16"). The color is Wheat. Our collection also includes the square jug in Wheat. The jug and smaller decanter were found in small antique shops in our travels and the larger one is a new addition from "Ruby Lane", an online antique store.

Bruce, you take amazing photos! I saw an amber basket from this line in a shop in Rockville, IL (we were attending a Blenko event at Tammy's), but the piece had been used as a planter, and was water and soil stained beyond what I thought I could clean without professional help.
