Heart of Glass - Blenko Glass

Blenko Glass is a West Virginia treasure that spans generations. Nothing symbolizes the state of West Virginia better or more beautifully than Blenko Glass. We will discuss current and former craftsmen and designers and how important it is that Blenko and West Virginia glass be appreciated and valued by the younger generation.

Not glassdoc but I must respond to this.
Alex I have enjoyed the online museums, I don't get out a lot and enjoy seeing glass. Museum the name is not appropriate perhaps but seeing photos is enjoyable.
People make their living selling glass to folks who know less than they do. This is a fact, so arm yourself with knowledge before you buy and then beware
museum doesn't mean quality nor does it mean its old or valuable.
Just be aware.
I find many things offensive in this world but never photos that are not x rated.
