I would be very interested in selling my WV Birthday Collection Piece #8 “The Bonnet” or “Ladies Bonnet”. It is Signed by William Blenko  and is Number 55 of 124. This piece is in Mint Condition with no Cracks, Fleabites, Chips or Discoloration of any kind. I have kept it in an Enclosed China Cabinet in my Dining Room. Attached are a few pictures. I would be happy to furnish additional pictures if needed. I may be reached at this email address. I am considering offers.
Kindest regards,
Jeff

The birthday vases are not visible on the blenkoproject.
Nor is it updated. 2012 is showing and photos of 2009 only.
FYI.

BTW this seller is never going to get $1300. I paid 900 and felt I over paid in 2011.

This one is very difficult to acquire.
It may well bring $1300.

I think you guys misunderstood the price. He is asking $3100 not $1300.

Shit now even the famous NYC dealer would ask more than 1300.
After purchasing for $900.

Pardon me.
Merd, Not even the NYC Dealer would ask this much.

I don't know - what is a piece worth if it were the last one you needed to complete your collection?
Any collectible is worth what someone is willing to pay for it without duress. The value of this piece will only go up.

I agree the prices will increase.
In 2005 or 6 my Dad paid $1800 for the 1980 WV B-Day vase.

We are stupid, stupid enough to love local hand crafted glass.
And we get out of our homes daily to work and we are not living on the inter net and eating 24/7.
We wish you well.

If it were the last vase I needed
I would pay the 3,100.
I don't need this one
but 98 95 and 99 fail to show up in my sphere.
