365 Days of Blenko Glass Photos. Jupiter Florida Photo


Hello, This piece is either out of the 40's or early 50's. I had a uncle who worked at Blenko and my grandparents had this. I remember there was a red one and I think blue in my family it has bubbles thru out. Its a ash tray.Anthony  Jupiter Fl

I own this bubble ashtray and lighter set

Great item.

We started one of our gkids on collecting ashy trays
he now has 10 unique ashtrays, he paid less than 20 for each.
Thus far no lighters.
FYI - Another collects only charcoal - she has two pieces of glass.
She also collects marbles. Note to other gparents. Our mentor says:
Collecting 'anything' is a good learning tool.
