Blenko Glass Blog - - -Blenko Glass.

Hilary,  Do you have examples of the older catalogs?  I may be interested but don't want to have crumble paper and photos I can't see.  Suggestons?  Ron
Ron,  Acquiring catalogs can be an expensive adventure.  While owning catalogs is a goal for many collectors,  most all catalogs are now available for viewing - no charge - on line.  I can't speak to the quality of an older catalog -  Blenko  catalogs were always produced and printed by a quality contractor and seen to hold up over time.   My first suggestion is to look on line, using the websites devoted to Blenko for catalog access.   American Glass Museum in Weston owns and reprints many Blenko Catalogs.  As I mentioned in a previous post -  reprints of catalogs are available for under $25 @  on line.  
This photo is of a reproduction catalog I own - the quality is excellent.   Spiral bound and affordable.  If this doesn't answer your question - email theblenkoproject@aol.com  and I'll attempt to send you links to the sites.
