Husted Blenko 5616-A vases
A small grouping of Husted designed Blenko #5616-A vases. All three of these came from different stores across the state of Texas. The vase on the left is actually a "61 Charcoal piece but the photo has shifted it's color. It came from a shop outside of Austin, Texas. The Jonquil came from Azle, Texas and the Turquoise from Seymour, Texas. I had fun with the finding the turquoise piece in that it was in a shop in Shelley's mother hometown where she has been keeping an eye out for pieces since she knew I collected Blenko. She was hoping to surprise me when instead I walked in and surprised her.
Hope you and the blog enjoy,
