Mid Century 1965-66 Large Blenko Decanter Rare Peacock Color ...18 1/2" Tall :
For your consideration is this rare and beautiful Mid Century (1965-1966) large Blenko Peacock Decanter. (apprx 18 1/2" tall X 10" wide) It also has a nice weight to it. The flame stopper is perfectly shaped.
This one has a deep, rich saturation of this gorgeous Peacock Color. The flattened top on the belly gives it a real mid-century modern shape. I believe it was designed by Joel Meyers. I don't know how many of these are still around in good shape. I think it is an optic design but I don't know enough about that to be sure.
I verified with a Blenko expert before listing that this decanter is for certain the Peacock color which was only used during the years 1965 and 1966. I was told definitely.
The condition is very good to excellent vintage. No chips, no cracks and an all over nice shiny in tact surface other than a very fewminor scratches and a minorscuff. Nothing that in any way draws attention or detracts from the stunning over all appearance and qualityof this piece. I also want to add that when I added close ups of the stopper I noticed a small fracture inside near the ground area. You can't feel anything an it's not chippedon the outside but I can see it near the edge there.
I have put a picture so you can see it clearly.
You may see some water droplets in the pictures as I washed it out.
This piece comes from a private collection and has just come out of storage.
I will have it professionally wrapped and packed for the buyer to insure the safest shipping.
