Blenko Predesigner decanter and air twist stemmed glasses

HI Hillary,
I have a little time today so I will try to get my backlog of photos out to you for the blog.
I will start with this nice grouping of Predesigner pieces. The decanter is a Blenko #519 with two Blenko 800S air twist stemmed glasses in Blenko's Ruby. I really enjoy the craftsmanship of the older Blenko and especially the ruby.

Hope you enjoy,
Bruce Specht

Turquoise Glass




About a year ago, I saw an article in the Huntington paper asking for pictures 
of Blenko Glass.  Here is a picture of part of my mother's collection of 
turquoise glass.  (See has other pieces.)  I'm not sure if everything is Blenko 
though.



Let me know if you need close ups of these pieces, or if you would like me to 
send pictures of the rest of the collection.
