Blenko Glass. Identification of Blenko Glass.

For  collectors who purchase after market Blenko Glass, there is always the question of Identification.   Is it Blenko?  Is it WV Glass or American Glass?  Or is it a glass object from Home Goods?   
Many times its easy to distinguish, the weight, the classic  look,  the pontail, the stamp Blenko Glass on the bottom, a signature?
Collectors new and old often turn to webpages to assist.   The Blenko Collectors - Four has a classic webpage with colors, and signatures.  This would be my first choice.  The Blenko Project www.blenkoproject.org has all available Blenko Glass Catalogs published on line to allow the new collectors to identify their glass.

What do you think...are these two items Blenko?
I'll be interested in your thoughts.  hjh

The top is not blenko

The bottom is etched? Blenko doesn't etch, the base looks blenko
and the first one could be an oops piece or artist proof.

I think the bottom may be a Charlie H glue job. I've seen something similar before.
