Blenko West Virginia 150th Birthday Piece #72 Of 150:
$375


Believe me, I had no thoughts of putting this piece on when I spent 20 hours at Blenko waiting to buy it! Although it was a funtime, it was a long wait, but this piece is the best West Virginia Birthday piece yet as evidenced by the overwhelming demand! However, it is about3/4 inch toowide to fitinmy display cabinet,and I have no other good place to put it, soit may as well go to someone else to enjoy. And, I can "recycle" the money for more Blenko at the upcoming Festival of Glass! :)

The piece comes with the signed numbered card, a Blenko advertisement for the pieceand is packed in the original box which is labeled. It will be double boxed both for safety and to preserve the labeling. The piece is numbered and signed by Walter Blenko and the designer, Arlon Bayliss. The color is a lovelypale blue which reflects the light beautifully and accents the heart design of the piece.

The piece is called "Birthday Hearts for West Virginia" and was limited to 150 pieces, one made for each year WV has existed. The designer wanted this piece to be extra special, and he succeeded! The piece is representative of how West Virginians hold each other in their hearts andof the care and craftsmanship of the Blenko staff who put their heart and soul into making these pieces. It is made in light blue and crystal glass, is approximately 11 inches tall, a ballooning vase that expands with billowing hearts from a narrow base to broad rounded shoulders and a flared rim. It is close to 10 inches wide. The color is beautiful! On the bottom, it has: etched signatures of Walter Blenko and Arlon Bayliss, sandblasted Blenko 2013, WV 150th and 72 of 150.

Please note- I will be out of town for the final few days of the sale. If you have questions, I will respond as soon as possible, but may not be able to do so in a timely manner. If you are the winner of this piece, it can be shipped the day after the sale ends. If you have a shipping preference, please advise.

I can sell only to Paypal buyers in the Continental U.S. Thank you for looking at my sale!
