Blenko Collector - The Gift of Literature

Many of my favorite designs are from early 60s to late 70s.

This is another delightful book by Leslie Pina.

You posted a photo of the long decanter pictured here - tell me what I should pay for this.
Is it available at Blenko?
Can I special order this item?
I phoned to ask on Sat at 9:30 am and no one
knew. So don't tell me to phone Blenko.

The pieces shown on the covers of the books of catalog reproductions are not in the current catalog. The yellow decanter is a #638. According to the price guide in the back of the same book, published in 2000, the small version should run $60 - $70, the medium one $75 - $100, and the large $125 - $150. This is just a guide; you may find these decanters for less, or for more, depending on how knowledgeable your seller may be.

Good luck,
