I'm not selling and I continue to seek the five I don't own.
This collection started in 1980 before 3/4 of us were in elementary school.
The ladies owning this collection are now in their 60-80s I would think.
Perhaps estate is selling or people downsizing for the 'personal care home'.
This uniquely difficult to acquire set remains high on my list.
I recently learned The WV Museum of Glass, The State Cultural Center and Blenko Glass do not own the entire set!
Good Luck to others.
Vivek I'll send a note to you with my email. I will purchase any legitimate WV Birthday Vase.
I have seen many 2nds and fakes being offered.
