Blenko Glass. Blenko Colors

Dear Blenko Project:
My question is about Blenko Colors?  How do I identify the color?  Also how many colors does the water bottle come in?  My goal is collect all these.  Kimberly Webb  Mt. Pleasant SC
Kimberly,  In most of the Blenko Catalogs there is a listing of the colors for that year.  Blenko frequently produces colors not listed.  They also frost items.  Identification of colors is difficult.  The Blenko Archive has a color page.  The Blenko Collectors - Four has an extensive list of colors with samples.  Neither of these sites include colors produced after 2012.   There is a blog called 364 Days of Blenko water bottles.  I would recommend becoming a reader of this blog.  The owner of the blog collects Blenko and like you, has a great interest in new and different water bottles.

I also follow this waterbottle blog.
Glassdoc gave me a link a year or so ago.
Many of us collect only the lowly water bottle.
