Well

I picked this up at an auction in the hopes I did not pay to much. They seem to have a good price over $100 on the internet.

It is in perfect condition still with the original stickers on it. Some minor flaws from the manufacturing of it. The flaws are on the base.

Wayne Husted Design of Blenko glass. Number 6212 started in 1962.

Hope I made a good purchase!!!!!!

Please let me know what you think

Thanks

    No worries! Anything less than $150 for this piece is a real find! It's not necessarily a "RARE" find, but this piece is DEFINITELY ICONIC! So unless your new purchase is chipped, cracked, broken or otherwise damaged AFTER it was made, the minor imperfections add to it's own uniqueness. This is what vmglasshouse.com (newsletter #13) has to say about all that;

    Pleasing Imperfections

    Blenko glass doesn't have the flawless quality of some of its famous Scandinavian contemporaries like Orrefors and Kosta Boda; Blenko, although very heavy, is rather soft. A fair number of pieces with minor imperfections, sometimes unnoticeable to the untrained eye, get through the inspection process. (This low wastage rate helps keep prices reasonable.) Many collectors think these small variations add interest and give pieces a "one of a kind" appeal.
