Blenko 6513


HI Hillary
The first photo shows a pair of Myers designed heavy crystal cased vases in Turquoise and Peacock. These are Blenko 6513's produced by Blenko from 1965-68. I stumbled upon both of these in the past six months as mislists on ebay and paid only $20 for each. The second photo is a closeup to show the casing in more detail. The second pair is a couple of Blenko's more recent designs that were purchased at a signing event for both of my girls. Each was signed by Richard with their names as well. I believe these are both Hank Adams designed. The left is a 5206 in Azure with Celery lip and a 4106 in Celery with Cobalt lip.
Enjoy
