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.

West Virginia Birthday Vases Seeking New Home

   My maw maw passed this past year.  I inherited and do not want her West Virginia and Ohio glass.   Its a bunch of odd n ends except for the State Birthday Vases.
    She has the first four and the last eight.
I have been told the first ones are worth about 1,000 each and the later ones about $500.
Is this accurate?   Will you help us find someone who needs these?

Blenko and most other vintage glass is worth whatever another is willing to pay.  I will post your note.  If you will send photos - I'll add these.
Most collectors will want to see the bottom and a good quality photo of the entire piece.
Thank you for reading.
If you want to learn more about Blenko Glass -- the history and also learn about collecting, may I suggest The Blenko Project,  another good site is Blenko Glass Collectors - Blenko Four, and of course the Blenko Glass Company website  and facebook pages devoted to Blenko.
She has 1980 - 84
She has 2012 - 2015
