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.

Blenko Glass - Vintage Blenko


What you have is a Blenko Glass - Fire and Ice bowl. Blenko has made this for almost a decade. It is not rare

or unusual ( sorry).

This is one of my favorite Blenko special color items - four items were made in this color combo.

You didn't mention where you live - if in West Virginia and you are a Mountaineer Fan - consider using this one for pre and post game parties.

Many collectors seek to find all items made in a particular color combo.

If I can be of further assistance let me know.

Hillary, I am wondering if you and your readers have seen the Blenko water bottle blog? It is called a year of Blenko water bottles and is at blenkowaterbottles.wordpress.com

Has anyone been to Blenko in Milton since first of the year?
I heard shelves are almost empty and no shops are working.
True? or False?

Yearly Blenko shuts down the blowers from Dec to Feb ( or at least in the last 5 years) if you don't believe me call them.
Only the security the VC and the office are working.
The men hunt and fish and enjoy this time off.
Milton, WV

OK Be honest Dr Glasslady have you ever in this life time done a pre or post game party?

One of the better color experiments of Blenko in recent years.
This I was told was a combination of Osburn and Rick Blenko.
Sad neither remain connected to Blenko.

Anyone have Osburn glass for sale?
I'd like another hummingbird feeder.

Dr. Bob, in just one post you have managed to show your vast ignorance of past Blenko employees.
