Blenko Painting

Hi Doc,

As Shelley and I travel together searching for Blenko or the occasional Enid Collins purse you can never tell what we might stumble upon along the way. This is just such an example. Any one want to guess what item might be Blenko? This almost made the trip home and didn't that day because we were in our Fiero which didn't allow for transporting such a large painting. I may just have to take the truck the next time we venture out on the road.

Why do handles vary in sizes on a pitcher? Handmade influence?

Handles are applied by hand, i.e. without mold. So you see differences. Thanks, V
