June 20th WV Birthday - Blenko WV Birthday special edition piece

West Virginia Day celebration
June 17-18, 2016.
Annually we produce a very limited, special edition piece to celebrate our states birthday. West Virginia will be 153 years old this year, so we offer 153 pieces Only. A Friday night open house with special prices. WV Birthday piece offered beginning at 8AM Saturday. Line form several days earlier. Special annual limited edition production, signing event and sale

It's never too early to mark your calendar for the very special Blenko Event.
Since 1980 Blenko Glass has been making a limited number special item for the celebration of West Virginia's Birthday.
We haven't seen the artist drawings - nor do we have yet any clue about this WV Day piece - but always BLENKO GLASS does something very special.

There are 13 known sets of the entire collection - one is currently on Craigslist for $25,500....but we think the experience of yearly collecting is far more valuable.

Questions about the WV Birthday Vases visit www.blenkoproject.org  The Blenko Project  for photos of all the WV Birthday Vases and to learn more about Blenko Glass.

Blenko Glass has a facebook page,  you might want to join. 
There is also a Blenko Collectors facebook page,  making connections with groups like these is a great way to increase your knowledge and word of mouth is the best source for collecting sources.

   The Blenko Project keeps a list of available WV Birthday Vases ( older ones) for sale by owners.  As a part of our service we try to connect sellers and buyers of vintage Blenko. 
#1 in a series of WV Birthday Vases
