Colonial Williamsburg Reproductions

Hilery,  Can you tell me about the Williamsburg Reproductions by Blenko sold at the Williamsburg Inn gift shop and catalogs?  What should I pay - where do I find?
Elizabeth Dolan
Elizabeth,   Blenko has made Williamsburg Reproductions  on two occasions.   The Blenko Project www.blenkoproject.org web site contains an extensive collection of Blenko Glass catalogs on page 15  I found the photo and info below.    Williamsburg ReproductioReplacements, Ltd. China, Crystal & Silver - Old & New -1-800-replace (1-800-737-5223) 9:00 am - 10:00 pm ET, 7 days!ns can be purchased on line from a Glass / China Replacement  Group.  We would recommend Replacements LTD.   Dean Six ( WV Glass Museum) is associated with this replacement group,  we've yet to hear a negative comment from folks who purchase from Replacements, LTD. 
Blenko Glass  made a re reproduction of the Williamsburg Glass a few years ago.   These glasses can sometimes be found at the Milton Flea Market and in local antique/glass shops.  The cost is much less than the vintage 30s Reproduction.
We have a blog friend Sam Tyree who owns 50 assorted sizes and he is asking $17 @ for his reproduction glasses..  If you have an interest in Sam's glass  send a note to theblenkoproject@aol.com with your contact information and we'll forward the same to Sam.
You ask about a fair price,  I believe the Replacements LTD price to be fair.
Thank you for writing ,  for reading the blog and for purchasing Blenko Glass.   Blenko Glass is made in USA.

I believe that Blenko once again has the contract to make the Colonial Williamsburg reproductions.
