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.

Good Afternoon,
Hoping you may be able to help, we have 2 sets of what I believe are bookends, they still have a Blenko sticker on them. One is a rectangular set with the number B-13 on the sticker and they are 3 1/2" w x 5 3/4"t. The other set are round with a flat bottom and have the number B-14 on the sticker and they measure 5" w x 4 3/4"t. I have attached pictures. Any information that you may have would be greatly appreciated.
Many Thanks,

Can you help this reader ID a sugnature?

Hoping you can help me with with a signature, I'm not sure who this is. It doesn't look like anyone listed on your site that worked at Blenko in 2006. This is signed on a 30 inch Ruby floor decanter which I bought at the Blenko factory in 2006.

Unique Blenko Hourglass

Good afternoon:

I can tell that this is a Hour Glass/Sand Timer with Blenko glass. I haven't been able to find another with blue glass.

Can you tell me anything about it-age, origin, etc?

Thanks for your help!

Dear Blenko project
Attached please find a photo of a glass vase which I am trying to identify. It stands approximately 7 ½ “ high, is perfectly round with a circular indentation on the bottom, and has a flat rim as I have seen in other Blenko pieces. I have looked through the catalogues and seen round vases or tall ones with flat rims but not round with flat rims. I would be grateful if you could tell me whether or not this item was made by Blenko.
Many thanks in advance for your help. I live in the UK – My contact details are below.
Kind regards

Blenko Jug

I have a large Blenko two handled jug that I cannot id as to designer or year.  I believe it is either Nickerson or Shepherd but cannot locate a similar one looking at the catalog pages.  It is 15” high, 8” in diameter at the bottom and 9 1/4” in diameter from handle to handle.  It is in tangerine.  Any help you can provide will be appreciated.
Thank you,
