Blenko Paperweights

Recently a young reader ask if Blenko made paper weights.   The first two photos crystal heart and star are currently in the Blenko Glass catalog for under $20.   At one time Blenko made unique complex paperweights ( see photo #3).  On occasion a more complex paperweight made by one or two of the Blenko workers can be found in the Gift Shop.  This type is not available on line or in the catalog.  hjh  This is correct to the best of my knowledge-  if you have  other information.  Please comment here.
