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.

Hillary - Did Blenko make a wine glass? If so tell me what the correct # is so I can order.
I can not find this on line. I also can not find the high ball glases.
(sp) I'd like a dozen of these with a ruby swirl. Would you please place this order. If the wine glasses are under $30 I will also take a dozen. Laura B.

I'm printing your note - not to embarrass you but because weekly my mail includes a dozen 'orders' for vintage Blenko.
I don't work at Blenko, for Blenko nor do I sell BLENKO!
To my knowledge the current line includes no wine glass, and the highball glasses are no longer listed on the web page http://www.blenkoglass.com/.
These items are often available on call, in vintage stores ( Purple Moon - Charleston, WVa - The Bronze Look Princeton, WV - So Charleston Antique Mall - Kiss Kate).
Also EBay can be a source of vintage Blenko.
Good Luck .

If you have knowledge of where to purchase the highball or the tableware mentioned - leave a message.

Blenko made some excellent wine and water goblets
The williamburg line comes to mind, also 5 or 6 years ago I was able to buy ( VC) the 2nds on wine and water glasses that were made for Rick Blenko and Collectors.
Blenko can do excellent fine tableware and crystal.
Lead crystal is no longer allowed.

Wine glasses are in the VC, but not in quantity and the colors vary. The large are $40 and the smaller are $30.

Are the glasses made by Blenko?
I saw glasses made by Hinkle and others.
I did not see wine glasses at VC made by Blenko.
I wanted Blenko if it is possible.
Please write back. I can't get to VC again this year however I could phone to order.

No photos of frogs or essays about the heart?
Are you growing tired of Blenko?
Tired of Valentine's Day?
Your V-Day essays were entertaining. Bring them back.
