Husted pitchers


Another pare of Husted designed pitchers that have found their way into the collection. On the left is a Blenko #543 in Tangerine crackle and on the right a Blenko #567 in Turquoise crackle. Super vibrant colors and crackle really make these two of my favorites. Hope you enjoy as well.

the colors seem very rich, much richer than today.
Bruce is my observation correct?
