Blenko Glass Company. Texas Glass Collector

HI Doc,
Juts wanted to send along this nice pair of Myers and Husted sheared top vases. The Tangerine vase on the left is Joel Myers designed Blenko #6923 with an earlier design of Wayne Husted, a Blenko #6317. The Myers design only has the dimples on two sides as opposed to an earlier design by Husted that all four sides have the pattern. The Husted vase is Jonquil and has a rose image on one side of the vase.

Two nice examples of Blenko vases where the tops have been cut off and ground.

Hope your readers find this useful,
Bruce S.
