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.

1991 WV Blenko Birthday Vase

This classic vase in crystal with a cobalt swirl is often used to hold flowers.

Our neighbor Danny Craft a rosarian uses several Blenko vases to display his roses.

This one is a favorite.

Another difficult to find in the after market.

Roxie, our blog friend reports she saw this one in Berkley Springs antique shop for less than $600.

Happy Blenko Birthday Vase hunting.

OK Today I phone every antique shop listed in Berkley Spring only one has Blenko.
When I faxed the photo - it was sold on Monday.
Any other suggestions?
I'm down to minus 10, then I'll have the entire collection.
