Blenko Find #992
We found this piece some time ago, but finally put it up on display. We got it for a very good price. We spoke to Mr. Blenko (Bill Jr.) and he told us many of these were shipped to Texas (for obvious reasons) but this is the first one we ever encountered in the "wild" We saw one at the Huntington Museum and have seen one or two damaged ones for sale on eBay, but they seem fairly scarce. While it is a wall pocket and winner of a Good Design Award as a wall pocket, I would never hang it as a wall pocket. I can just imagine a stress crack or break or even worse.
