Is this Blenko?
A Texas Collector  who shares my love of vintage TV sent this.   
What you are looking at is a snap of 1960's TV series 'mission impossible'. Is that Blenko on the back?
Readers - what do you think?

P & Hill
The game shows from 80s often had Blenko in background or blenko inspired glass
Dating game and many talk shows.
Recently I wrote to Dr Drew to ask about the glass in his studio
it was not blenko but was bought from a big box store and 'looked a lot like' blenko. I sent him the link to your blenkoproject and told him how reasonably priced Blenko is.
Are you proud of me hill?

Glass Decanter
At a Glance:

•Clear glass decanter with top
•Unique handmade glassware
•Holds 1½ quarts
•Hand wash
•Made in the USA
•WILLIAMSBURG exclusive!
More Detail:
Ideally suited for holding your favorite wine or spirits, this glass decanter was expertly reproduced by Blenko Glass (a family owned and operated company since 1893) from an original in the Colonial Williamsburg Foundation collections. Thomas Jefferson's affinity for French culture led him to plant vineyards at Monticello, and in 1773 he turned more than 2,000 acres of rolling land to a Tuscan, Filipo Mazzei, to "prove the value of native grapes." A great gift for the gentleman who loves to host cocktail hour, this handsome decanter is crafted for a lifetime of use.

This in answer to the multiple questions about Blenko and Williamsburg. If you bought at the factory you bought 2nds.
Very reasonable for 1st at the Willaimsburg store.
