Myers and Husted ground top vases

Myers and Husted ground top vases

 These two pieces have come home in the past several months from local dealers here in Weatherford, TX. and Oklahoma City, OK.  Shelley and I stumbled upon the Myers vase in OK but I wasn't sure of the identification on the piece until we returned home. I didn't buy it at the time and Shelley went out of her way to contact the dealer later and arrange the purchase and shipping. I was completely surprised to open a package on my birthday with this beauty inside. The Jonquil Husted design came from a dealer who I ended up purchasing another Myers designed vase from as well. On the left is the Myers designed Blenko #6923 in Tangerine and the Jonquil piece is a Husted designed Blenko #6317.

 Hope your readers enjoy too.
