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 predesigner

Hi Hillary,
As you are aware by now I really love the earlier Blenko designs. These are two more from the collection that have found their way to Texas over the last fourteen years of collecting. On the left is a nice example of a Blenko #353 urn vase in Ruby with a similar vintage Blenko #352 in Cobalt Blue. It is a little hard to make out the optics in the ruby piece from this photo but they add a wonderful effect to this vintage piece when it is displayed in natural light. Both of these pieces are approximately nine inches tall.

Hope you enjoy,
