    I believe this is a Pilgrim glass Madonna - WV origination. It is not a Blenko piece but it has the style that Joel Myers used for a period of time. Has anyone seen one of these?

      Hi WVdalgal
      I have the same Madonna but for my oppinion is Murano .
      http://www.muranonet.com/madonna-blue.html
      or
      http://annunci.ebay.it/annunci/per-la-casa/como-annunci-como/statuetta-madonna-vetro-murano/33662410
      But yors don't have a "Aureola" the weel around the Head .
    3. wvdalgal, 9 years ago
      I have an opinion (authorized) that it might be Murano but mine doesn't have the halo around the head (as you noticed) or any facial features. It doesn't have a shape in that the glass doesn't curve inward. Only the blue area inside shows the shape of the drape on the Madonna.
      I really think it is a PILGRIM glass piece. I have never seen one very similar to it.
      Thanks.

    5. wvdalgal, 9 years ago

      Does anyone know how to contact Joel Myers?

      I think it's Pilgrim too.
    8. wvdalgal, 8 years ago
      Hello Amber. Not trying to be cool, but why do you think it is Pilgrim?
    9. AmberRose AmberRose, 8 years ago
      Hi wv, couple of reasons...Pilgrim put out a Madonna that is considered on of the best they put out, colors are similar to Pilgrim and honestly...it just has that feel.
      I hate when people tell me that, sorry.
      Have a great day!
