That's gorgeous. Plus, it's orange and white. Which leads me to: Hook 'em, Horns! :)
That is really sad news to me. I have about 15 Blenko pieces (small ones) that my mom collected since the 50's.
I really hate to hear that! I've got a few pieces that I just love; it's sad to think I won't be able to continue collecting them.
I wonder if the Blenko pieces will go up in value after the plant is closed?
I would certainly think so.
The closing of Blenko is a sad day for West Virginia. Glassmaking is a work of art and a craft that has been around since the middle ages. The Blenko craftsmen were masters at glassmaking.I guess one of the tenets of capitalism is that businesses are free to fail-- even if they are national treasures. Blenko was the last place in America where you could get mouth blown stained glass.Greensboro Daily Photo
