Blenko Glass Collection (part 1) Texas

Hi Hillary,
I know you've been asking for images, but with my and Karin schedules it's been tough. I photographed one of the 17 shelving units we have for our Blenko. This one is lit so the images look brighter. On shelf one we have our Blenko rare paper label pieces, our cobweb pieces, an Iowa Corn Bottle made by Blenko, one of three Blenko Madonna part of a retired employee collection Washington Cathedral pieces and the Winslow Anderson cocktail/ashtray glassShelf two I have three of my 384H handle water bottles, a Hank Adams Devil head vase, a Husted cat decanter and and an unusual Wild Rose vase.Shelf three has three Rialto pieces. one Raindrop piece and three Regal pieces.
