Blenko - Husted - Floor Decanter #588 - The Rocket Decanter - Turquoise Blue
Designed by Mr. Wayne Husted, and said to be the first "Architectural Decanter" produced by the Blenko company.
Shown in the 1958-1961 catalogs.
This piece has all the hallmarks of a genuine Blenko ...
  • Very thick glass
  • Fire-polished rim
  • Fully ground stopper stem and decanter neck
  • Pontil mark
  • The 1958-1961 sandblasted logo
It is 6-3/8" in diameter and 31-1/4" in height. It weighs 5 lbs. - 14 oz.
I've looked at it closely, shining a light at it from various directions, and I couldn't find any chips or cracks.
There are, however, water spots on the inside. It looks like some previous owner might have washed the inside, rinsed and drained it, and lay it on its side to dry. I first noticed it just now when inspecting it, and it was only really visible with a light shining at it from the side.
I don't collect Blenko. This piece is part of my small "kitsch" collection, which I've decided to phase out, rather than expand, even though I really, really like this particular decanter.
I will pack it with extreme care.
Shipping will be free to U.S. addresses.
Shipping to international addresses is a flat $80 and if the actual shipping cost is less, the difference will be refunded.
