Subject: Blenko pitcher info
Hi Hillary, It looks on your blog like you are a very busy person, so thanks for reading this! I was given a beautiful blue 5 ½” Blenko crackeled glass pitcher in 1977 as a wedding gift.I’m now trying to find out more about it, such as when it was produced, and maybe a guess at a current value.I want to give it as a gift to the Granddaughter of the lady that gave it to me.I’ve attached a photo. I’ve looked at the catalogs on the blenkoproject.org (I saw a similar photo in ’74 – maybe # 3750L, and also ’71 # 6916? – BUT it is almost impossible to read the font & it won’t zoom in), e-mailed Blenko (they say they don’t have the employees available to answer me), asked on Facebook – someone said to contact you, looked on e-bay, done other searches, etc.
Thanks for any help, Christine C
