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.

Blenko Glass. The Blenko Glass Blog. Signed Glass.

Hillary:    Is signed glass worth more than unsigned glass?   Angela Mullins

Mrs. Mullins,   I like signed glass , the signature provides a  permanent  method of identification.   Signed Blenko Glass is available 365 days a year.  At the Blenko Glass Gift Shop a special table of first quality glass with signature is available for purchase.  These items cost 20-50% more than items w/o signatures.
Blenko Glass also provides the ability to ask for a signature when you order online.  The cost is about $10 per item.
Blenko Glass also provides 'free signing of glass'  during the Annual Festival of Glass,  The WV Birthday Event, and Black Friday.   Both Mr. Walter Blenko and Mr. Bill Blenko are above 65 year of age.  I value their contributions to Blenko Glass and like having my purchases have their signature.
Angela,  with all art glass,  the value  - or what its worth is " what someone is willing to pay "
My suggestion to all collectors is have the glass signed.
