Bruce I have 7 of the gump colors
I use them yearly when I decorate bathrooms
and guest bedroom.
Red during Feb
Green during March
they are timeless. Blenko did attempt to remake in 2007 but they couldn't make a marriage with vase
and stopper.
This is the best way to determine a reproduction
Bad fitting stopper.

Thank you Bruce, This is the first time I've seen the entire Gump collection.
Your ability to take such lovely photos is of great benefit to new collectors.
ps If you decide to sell any glass - I want to be first in line.

I would also like to thank Bruce for sharing his photos. As a new collector, I often refer back to this blog and to The Project web site.

ALL OF 2005 is now gone
and only July of 2006 remains
one month for a whole year?
Please tell me how I can purchase the entire blog from beginning to now?
Thank you.
