A note and photos from Texas Collector of Blenko , Bruce S.
This photo is in response to a comment about the Nickerson jugs that was posted to the web a week ago. The first comment was about "Variations". Now I know she meant the Husted series of pitchers but it got me to thinking of all the variations of jugs that Blenko has done over the years. So with that in mind I searched out most of the jug designs I have in my collection for this grouping.
Hope your readers will enjoy as well.
