Blenko 564 Rare Aqua 1959 Decanter, Wayne Husted, 20 ½”:
Mid Century Modern doesn’t get any better than this piece of rare Blenko art glass. The designer of this piece, #564, was Wayne Husted who worked for Blenko from 1952-1963. It appears in the 1959 catalog. This information comes from the Blenko Archive website. I believe the color to be Aqua; however, within the blues and greens of Blenko there are several candidates. I believe I've captured the most accurate of photographs possible with backlighting to show off the color. The decanter measures a total of 20 ½” and 15” up to the rim. The ground stopper measures 10”, in itself, a work of the glass blower’s craftsmanship.
