Heart of Glass - Blenko Glass

Blenko Glass is a West Virginia treasure that spans generations. Nothing symbolizes the state of West Virginia better or more beautifully than Blenko Glass. We will discuss current and former craftsmen and designers and how important it is that Blenko and West Virginia glass be appreciated and valued by the younger generation.

A Blenko Collector : Selling 20 West Virginia Birthday Vases

  We have 20 West Virginia Birthday Vases.   I have the first ten
and then the last ten.   We've been told people are paying 1500 to 1000 for the early ones,
and about 500 there after.  Is this correct?   A year ago some one wanted to purchase the entire collection perhaps he will want my vases.     Will you provide an address so we can send our vases to you?  If you need a vase I'll give to you for the original sale price.
Thank You,
    Mrs. Clyde E. McCoy

Mrs. McCoy,

While I can not give you a value for your vases, let me assure you,
  the West Virginia Vases by Blenko are indeed valuable to others- those  Collectors who may need one or two   vases  to complete  their own collection.  
 I no longer collect the Birthday Vase,  my collection was a gift to West Virginia University while I was in Dental School. 
    If you will send us  the listing with the number of each signed piece
and perhaps a photo of each item,   Vivek will post  the list and photos.   Many  Blenko Collectors -  list items with EBAY, others  ask an auctioneer to assistance.
     You mentioned the first ten years?    I have a close friend/ collector looking for 89  and 91 - I'm certain he will want these two,
we get notes from folks daily asking about this collection and other vintage Blenko.
     Thank you for purchasing Blenko Glass -  this is a wonderful collection of glass by various Blenko Glass designers.  It was a way for Blenko to honor West Virginia.  A 30  plus year tribute.
   If you need  a few of the WV Birthday Vases to complete your collection - send us an email  - when we hear of available collections we'll contact you with the sellers info.  hjh 
This WV Birthday Vase is extremely difficult to acquire -  the size made it difficult to keep in a china or buffet / thus many have been broken or damaged.
