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 Birthday Vase Collectors. Blenko Glass Blog. Heart of Glass.

Hi Hillary,
We have a full set of West Virginia Birthday Vases but our 1987 Basket has begun to crack close to the handle. We would be interested to know if that vase was available for sale and the price the Seller would want.
Thank you,
1987 Basket Designed by DS

We have received this same complaint over a dozen times in the five years I've assisted with the blog.  Its a common complaint to have issue with the joints near the handles.  This is also one of the most difficult pieces to acquire.  So many were broken.   The handles are fragile.  We'll post this as a request.

Readers if you own a 87 Birthday Vase and you are not a Birthday Collector perhaps you'd be willing to rehome the vase?
If so send a note to theblenkoproject@aol.com and we'll put you in contact with collectors seeking this item
Thank you.
