Blenko Myers Honey designs
A am sending a nice grouping below to help folks with the color Honey. There can be some variance in the color from almost the wheat color that came in to Blenko's pallet later during Shepherd design period. Shelley is very fond of Honey and so I have been keeping my eye out for new pieces to add to the collection. I had a bit of luck lately and added the three pieces on the left over the past two months as mislist finds on Ebay. All of these are Joel Myers designs from the sixties. From the left you have a Blenko #658 S decanter, Blenko 669 optic decanter with ball stopper, Blenko #6711 S spiral wrapped decanter with ball stopper, Blenko #653 optic decanter with flame stopper, and Blenko 64E beehive vase.
Hope you enjoy,
