I BOUGHT FOUR OF PIECES FOR 2K AND MINE INCLUDED PHOTOS OF THE OWNER WITH BLENKO SIGNING FOR EACH FROM THE DIAMOND DEPARTMENT STORE

MOUNTAIN RITA
NOT FAKES

Fake? Does this mean they were birthday vases bought for $50 to $100 but unsigned? Bought from the factory ? by special collectors?
Beware of Birthday Pieces - I have heard the factory made 10 -12 each year these were sold off perhaps not even sold
they had no whblenko signature or #
when they were sold.
Be very careful of buying Birthday Vases.
