Readers - can you help ID this glass?

Hello and thanks!


Have looked ALL OVER the Web with no Luck on Identifying this Decanter which I believe is a Blenko!


I would love to know if it is a Blenko, who the Glass Blower was, the Year and the Blenko Number.  Anything else would be Great!


The Base is 6.5" wide.  The Decanter alone is 25" Tall.  The Stopper is 5.5".


Thank-You very much,

It is a Blenko 6231 in Tangerine. See the 1962 through 1964 catalogs.

Its blenko 6231, it was featured in 62 catalog on page 13. http://www.blenkoproject.org/1962
As for price, it was $15 when it was made. There is an online dealer selling something similar. You can contact him to check retail prices. Its a Husted, so am assuming it must be collectible.
