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 Company #441 pre designer pinched vase

Blenko Glass pre-designer pinched vases
Hi Hillary,
I guess I will start with these predesigner pinch vases. These are Blenko #441 in Turquoise and Ruby. These are relatively hard to find that don't have water damage since it is extremely difficult to clean the inside of the "donut".Have had this photo on hold for quite a while since I always had newer pieces that I wanted to share first. I also believe some of the other manufacturers produced similar pieces so you are left having to base your identification on the color and pontil mark.

Hope you enjoy,
Bruce Specht
