Blenko Glass with prunts

From Blog Friend Tim in Tx:

I have three examples of drinking glass with prunts.  I found the larger and the smaller one in some old Blenko catalogs, but I could not find the medium size one, until I did a quick flip through the Eason Eige and Rick Wilson Blenko Book. Sure enough there it was. I've looked through that book hundreds and hundreds of times, but I never noticed that piece. Just goes to show you think you know a lot about Blenko Glass and you can still get tripped up!

Thank you both for your kind comments. I always check in on the HofG blog and if possible add a comment or two. I will make more of n effort to go through our thousands of photos and old articles we wrote and share them with you all. BTW if you check out YouTube and search for BOTH "Collecting Blenko Glass" and "Karin Alonzo" you can see some videos we made several years ago (we will be making new videos pretty soon)
