How Much Is that Doggie ( or carafe) In the Window?


Dr. Homburg,
I'm not a new collector ( over 5 years now), however, when I see something like the attached offering of Blenko.  I wonder if what I'm collecting is original Blenko. Then remind myself I purchased the new items in my collection from Milton. 
Will you view the photos and the ad and email me with your response.

Blenko Cobalt Blue Vase or Carafe

   SUSAN,   Time doesn't permit me to response to every email we receive.
On occasion the email brings a smile to the face of the reader and its sent immediately to me.
I received your email today 11/7.
You are correct this is the same or very similar to the Blenko waterbottle.  
We always suggest folks check the www.blenkoglass.com website on line store or the
gift shop prior to purchasing.
Thank you for the smile.  I'm going to include this in a blog post.
One of the appraisers I use, frequently says 'Blenko is worth what the buyer is willing to pay!'

People frequently over charge the misinformed.
I have 15 birthday vases I want to let go. The first five $100_800. The remaining 350_400. If you can help me find collectors?
Thank you.
