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. IS This Blenko?

The Blenko Project is about 18 months behind in responding to emails from collectors, wanna be collectors, and friends of Blenko.   We lost two of our most valued volunteers in December 2015, and 19 months ago we lost Dr Vivek Yadav our webmaster.  We have yet to find replacements.

While we apologize for the backlog.  We will respond to all letters.

I'm publishing a few this week.   Easy answer letters that do not require research.
Hillery is this BLENKO?

This is NOT Blenko.  It was sold in large quantities at the 'Tuesday Morning' store.  Blenko Glass did make a heart bud vase, very similar in size, the Blenko heart was 99% of the time done in crystal and is much heavier than this imitation.
Thank you for the photo, for reading and for purchasing in the future Blenko Glass.
