This piece of glass was purchased on Ebay. While I do sometime purchase glass from there, it is not my usual
place of purchase. My boyfriend bought this for me after I had looked for a year for a piece similar to this
having seen it in a home that was decorated in nothing but Blenko glass and fine art.
It is the signature that has me somewhat concerned, this piece is supposed to be from a PBS donation done
for pledges. The signature which is Richard Blenko does not match the signature I have nor anything I can find on the internet.
The seller is willing to take it back, but the piece is pretty. Is is Blenko, I dont even see it in the catalog, although there are
Can you advise?
Thank you for your time,
