Blenko Glass

Located in West Virginia, Blenko Glass is still in production today with the mid-century designs fetching the highest prices and popularity. Blenko without stickers are best identified by the un-polished pontils on the bottom of their hand blown pieces. Blenko glass is most often a thicker heavier glass.

Here is a very unique mid-century large Blenko capsule shaped vase. The silver hand sticker label was used from 1933 to 1982. As depicted in the first picture, this vase catches the natural light in a way that only spun glass can. In the second picture, it is lit up with LEDs, setting a very nice ambiance.
