Glass ID - can you help this reader?

I have been unsuccessful identifying the pictures of the art piece
attached to this e-mail.  The antique dealer I bought it from PROMISED
me it was Blenko, but I can not find it in any catalogs.  It has the
characteristics of a Blenko piece, but I just don't know for sure.  It
stands 12 inches high and has about a 25 inch circumfrance.  It is
quite heavy, has air bubbles throughout, but has a rather smooth
pontil.  I want to give it to a collector for a wedding gift next
weekend, but don't want to make a big mistake if it's not Blenko.
Please help!  Thank you ever so much!
