1994 Blenko West Virginia Birthday

The Blenko pitcher for 1994  is thought by many to be a companion piece for the 1993 vase.  Both are similar in color and texture.
    This pitcher is difficult to find.  When you find it,  check for fractures in the handle.  Most common issue with this beautiful pitcher was the handle.
     A beautiful, useful pitcher.

the old glass is much heavier and better made is it not?
Just an observation.

You are not mentioning the large number of FAKE Birthday Vases
the unsigned and unnumbered that maybe falsely signed later.
Beware collectors if yuo didn't stand in line
and buy on the after market your
piece may or maynot be legitimate.
I discovered this the hard way
