Glass ID : Pink vase, is it blenko?

Hi. 

I have a beautiful pink ‘vase’ (?) that I have been trying to identify for some time. I am attaching a picture. It is definitely hand-blown with the pontil mark on the bottom. It has a sticker on it that says 18/K and I recently saw someone on ebay selling a piece they said was Blenko that had the same sticker  they even noted they had no idea why it had this sticker, but it looked exactly the same as mine (the sticker, not the piece). So, looking at the 1962 catalogue, there might be something similar, but it has a stopper, and my piece has a very wide opening (1.75”), so a stopper seems unlikely…still, I thought it was worth a try to see if this could possibly be a Blenko piece. The piece measures roughly 9” in height by 6” in diameter. 
Thank you for your time.
Best regards,
Alicia Rogers

I do love that very light shade of pink.
No one does pink this way now.

Has anyone had a piece with an 18/K logo?
