Reader Question - can you help?

As seen in the 1994 & 1995 Blenko catalog, the 18 fingers (with hobnails) large bowl.

My 2 questions are:

-1) Was this bowl made by one of Blenko's designers??

-2) Does this bowl have a number and name??

I LOVE YOUR BLENKO PROJECT website. Super, super good!

Many thanks, Susan in Western NC

This is item #942, made in 1994 and 1995, which makes it a Hank Adams design. Page 18 of the 1994 catalog says it is not available in Antique Green, Azure Blue or Orchid, which means it’s available in all the other colors made that year. Page 18 of the 1995 catalog lists it in Crystal, Emerald, Cobalt, Amethyst and Topaz. It cost $20 at the time.

Hope that helps!

I bought this item 2 months ago
at VC in Milton - age is questionable with Blenko
they reproduce at will.
