Heart of Glass - Blenko Glass

Blenko Glass is a West Virginia treasure that spans generations. Nothing symbolizes the state of West Virginia better or more beautifully than Blenko Glass. We will discuss current and former craftsmen and designers and how important it is that Blenko and West Virginia glass be appreciated and valued by the younger generation.

Blenko Glass Lamps


I have two questions.  #1) Does Blenko continue to make lamps - also how much do they cost?
#2) I am sending you a photo of a set of lamps I want to purchase,  the are $3K+  but lovely, however, if Blenko is still making them does this decrease the value?
Thank you for your response.

Dr Kumar,
    Blenko  continues to make glass lamps.  Charlie Harshbarger would be the contact person
at Blenko Glass.   As to the cost of lamps - they vary with the size, color and shape.  If you are seriously interested I would suggest phoning or driving to Blenko Glass.
    My parents collect Hinkle Lamps - made in WVa.  to view these google Hinkle Glass.
   I do not know if Blenko is currently making the lamps ( in your photo)  I am posting the photo so perhaps someone else will have an answer for you.
   We don't work for Blenko.  We like you appreciate the handcrafted glass and enjoy Blenko very much. May I invite you to visit WVa and Blenko Glass.  Our State Tourism Bureau can provide you with a list of 'all things glass' in WVa and the Tamarack Center located in Beckley WVa  is a show house for WVa Handcrafted items.  Many Blenko items are for sale at Tamarack. 
    Thank you for shopping Blenko.   Again, contact the factory.  Everyone associated with Blenko Glass is customer friendly.
