Blenko Variations

Some time ago, readers were asking for photos from the Blenko - Variations Series by Wayne Husted.
These 12 vases were sold by special order only -  four offerings each had three bottles.
At time of purchase they were appropriately $450 per the three plus postage.
The number sold is questionable.   Some research indicates there were 40 people who subscribed for the entire series.
Blenko also sold the 2nds at the Visitors Centers.   Wayne Husted also sold Artist Proofs and
some Artist Proofs for each of the 12.  
This series as with most of the unique and quality items sold by Blenko Glass  www.blenkoglass.com has increased in value .
If you own the Variations Series,  or have additional info - let us know and we'll add new information to the Blenko Project  www.blenkoproject.org. website.

I bought the first set, cancelled after, and started getting from VC for much less money.
Some are signed, some are not signed.
I am willing to sell all.
