Blenko Myers decanters

HI Doc,
I am always on the lookout for Myers pieces and especially if they are Honey, Shelley's favorite color, or Peacock, my favorite. These two found their way to Vashti recently and they are just as beautiful as I expected they would be in person. On the left is the Myers designed Blenko #6516 and on the right a Blenko #6530-L optic decanter  with flame stopper. I especially enjoy the older 6516 decanters with the taller stoppers as this piece has.The 6530-L is the first large decanter in this design I have found but I believe that Shelley has the same in Honey for me as a Christmas gift. Can't wait to see the other and get the two together. Will share in the near future.

Hope you enjoy,

Bruce Specht

I like Myer's work compared to Husted. The peacock decanter is timeless.
