Seeking Blenko - Sold at Kaufman's in Pittsburgh

I'm seeking  a series of four pieces of crystal glass sold in the Kaufman's Pittsburgh location.
They were signed by Mr Bill Blenko and numbered.

I don't have photos.  Does any of this make sense?  If so can you help me replace these items that were lost when we moved  my grand mother from her home in 2000.  We are just now realizing the loss.  She had a list of items. 
Her description was crystal bowl,  crystal flower vase,  crystal triangle, crystal basket.
Thank You.

I do know this series.   It started at Kaufman's in Pittsburgh the same year the WV Birthday Series began in West Virginia.  May I suggest,  You might  advertise on Craigs' List or ask a Pittsburgh dealer to assist you.
We'll ask if anyone of our Blenko Collectors own these series - if so we'll get photos - and if they want to rehome the glass we'll give you their contact info.
Thank you for reading and for purchasing Blenko Glass.
Note:  I couldn't get the photo to publish.  May I suggest your google Texas Blenko - Bruce S
sent photos of this series to the blog in
Bruce owns three pieces .  Helen Lodge owned the Vase.  Steve and Margie Bair  of Charleston also own the vase.
