Blenko Myers spiral wrapped decanter and vase

HI Hillary,

This has been a week for finding missing pieces to fill out different series of designs I have in the collection. On the left is a Myers designed Blenko #6816-CT decanter with a Blenko #6817-CT vase. I have been looking for the decanter for years and was lucky enough to find one recently.  Hard to photograph but a joy to see in person.

Hope you and the blog enjoy as well,

Bruce Specht

Doesn't this look similar to the special editons?
The wrap is a little heavier the body a little curved?
