    I have also found my third piece of Blenko. This is a paperweight from their Zodiac series, Capricorn. I believe this is from the 60s unless someone knows if they re-issued. Too bad I am a Sagittarius...the best of all the signs;)

      Sean, you don't happen to be a January baby are you?
      Look at my ice bucket I just posted. Would like your opinion.

      Amber, i like it. t is very Swedish-like.

      @Bellin: so you're just about to have your birthday! :) Mine was the 44th too :D

      Yes Austro, that is how I spotted it. It was just a better quality than all the glass it was sitting with. I literally thought, oh thats something.

      Thanks for the love Scandi, V, Austro! Bellin and I like you too Hunter.

      This is a dumb question, but....I have never seen a ram that was also a mermaid. Are the other signs in this series so novel? Interesting.
    7. AmberRose AmberRose, 9 years ago
      Agreed miKKo. I had to look it up. Zodiac symbols have a number of this whacky Capricorn look. No idea why, haven't dug into it yet.

      Happy Mother's Day, Amber
      I hope it was a very good one.
      hugs,

      Based on your label, I believe your piece is post-1982:

      Just picked up a similar one, Cancer in teal green. Great decorative piece!
      Hope this helps!
