    I have had a dry couple of months at my usual haunts. Despite the fact that I only got to hunt briefly this week it yielded amazing amount of treasure. I found this green Blenko-ish (?) piece at one thrift then three days later, way way across town, I found the blue one!
    I am on the fence if these are indeed Blenko. Colors appear to be right. Thickness of glass seems good. However, no pontil.
    Thoughts???

      Seems to be Blenko. I like them. Blenko is completely unknown in Europe. Do you know this site: http://blenkowaterbottles.wordpress.com/

      Thanks Cobaltcobold! Had never seen that site before, amazing.

      These are definitely Blenko. The Blenko water bottles do not have pontils. If you check out Blenkowaterbottles.wordpress.com on day 44 there is a picture of the special holder that Blenko uses to hold the water bottles which eliminates the need for a pontil. The colors look like Azure and Olive Green but I can't be sure from the photos provided. Great Finds.

      Yuko, you are very sweet, thank you for the nice compliment. I have been looking at your matchbox collection very closely. Amazing graphics!

      Deffinitely Blenko, this was a very common form. They're called water pitchers, and they didn't have pontils
