Scarce Vintage BLENKO Art Glass Decanter RIALTO Ruby Applied Eye Stopper 1 of 2 Item Description
  • Described By: Barbara / KS
  • Title and Subtitle: Scarce Vintage BLENKO Art Glass Decanter RIALTO Ruby Applied Eye Stopper 1 of 2
    Designed by Wayne Husted 1960 in limited quantities
  • Description:
    Attention all collectors of fine Art Glass- fresh from a good estate! Hess Fine sales is pleased to offer for your consideration ONE of Two highly collectible contemporary Art Glass pieces by the Blenko Glass Company, each to be listed and sold individually on our seller’s site today!

    An American institution in business since 1893, the Blenko Glass Company has been a leader in the art of Modern Glass.
    This highly collectible piece exhibits all of the One–Of-A-Kind quality of hand blown glass. It references the contemporary art of Man Ray and Dali with the Ruby Red Eyeball on the stopper, matching the accent of the applied red ring around the neck.
    Pattern: Rialto
    Designed by Wayne Husted in 1960, made for only one year and in limited quantities.
    The Rialto Specialty Line, executed with translucent white bodies, often fading from nearly transparent to completely opaque in places. All applied bands, handles, decorative elements and stoppers are in Ruby.

    Rialto is perhaps the most unusual and rarest of all three Specialty Lines. At no other time in the Historic Period did Blenko ever produce a translucent glass, and never again a white glass. The white glass acts as an ideal surface for highlighting Blenko's signature Ruby color.

    Technical difficulties with annealing combined with a high loss rate as the result of being particularly fragile due to the tin oxide used for coloration conspired to result in the lowest production rate of all the Specialty Lines. In addition, the fragility has undoubtedly resulted in higher losses of the existing examples over the years.

    Decanter stands with stopper at approximately 13 inches high by 5 3/4 inches wide by 5 inches deep. Decanter alone stands 9 inches high. Stopper is 3 5/8 inches wide by 5 1/4 inches high by 1 1/4 inch thick.

    IMPORTANT NOTE: As stated above, this line was produced for 1 year only. Blenko was never again to produce translucent or white glass, making this very special and collectible. The tin oxide used in the making of this glass resulted in this series being unusually fragile for Blenko Glass, which means fewer pieces have survived, adding to their rareness.

    Our sale estimate for this decanter is in a modest range fro $300 to $500; however you will find our RESERVE $100 less than the low estimate! Good luck on your offer!

    Please be sure to see our other Blenko Glass piece of the “Rialto” series designed by Wayne Husted and view our many detailed images.
