Can we help this reader ID her blenko vase?
I have attached two pictures one is of the vase itself and the other of the signature on the bottom where it appears the Blenko date stamp was removed.
I have been told that this piece was a special piece done by Richard Blenko for PBS at the time and he signed it himself.
All I know is that the signatures I have seen do not look like the one on this vase and I just need to verify if my lovely vase
is a) Blenko glass and b) signed by Richard Blenko in 2001 in Detroit.
Thank you for your time and quick response,
