Glass Turtle Is This Blenko? Blenko Glass Blog. Heart Of Glass.
I sent an email June 6 and have not heard back so I am re sending. Please tell
me if this is a Blenko, I see fish in the catalogs but no turtles.
We are trying to liquidate an estate, the daughter said it was bought in the 1950's.
We are more than 11 months behind in responding to questions from the www.blenkoproject.org email. Our volunteers are working as quickly as possible, however, we receive multiple request daily, many containing several images that require research to determine their origin.
It is now our policy to determine - the glass is Blenko or not Blenko and then determine the maker ONLY if the original sender makes a second request.
If our volunteers are not 100% or can't find an item in the catalogs we own they will respond within 2 weeks of date the volunteer receives the photos.
Note: It is our belief the above Turtle is NOT Blenko. It was in no catalog we own. If a Blenko Blog reader knows the origin of this 1960s turtle please notify this reader via a comment. Thank you.
