Vintage Blenko 1959 Art Glass Nile Green Decanter; Integral Spout 5921; Husted For Sale
We are selling an original 1959
Blenko art glass decanter and stopper, called Integral Spout Decanter & Stopper
#5921. This decanter is easily held, has
a lovely color, and has a great mid-century design.
researched this decanter at an organization’s (org) website “blenkoarchive”
(what a good reference!). Based on our
review of the decanter and our research, we know the following:
This decanter is hand-blown in a strong
The handle to the decanter is built into the
design; it is grasped at the indent below the base of the neck and above
the pouring spout. It is easy to
In the organization’s Blenko design gallery,
this decanter is pictured and is called “5921 integral spout
In the organization’s copy of Blenko’s 1959
catalog, this design was pictured and had the number #5921.
It is a lovely deep green that Blenko named “Nile”; 1959 is the only year that this color name was used.
The decanter has its original stopper in the
same color as the body (but it is quite thick and the green is harder to
see). The stopper is ground to fit
and is ground flat on its bottom.
The neck of the decanter has also been ground a bit to ensure a
proper fit for the stopper.
The decanter body has a rough pontil mark on the
Around the pontil, the base has been ground to
allow the decanter to sit flat.
The sandblasted Blenko mark is located on the
ground base. The mark is a
copyright symbol “C” over “Blenko” with a very faint hand underneath. According to the organization website we
consulted, this sandblasted mark was only used from late 1958 to early
This mark’s time period falls firmly into the
Blenko design period of Wayne Husted (1952-1963) and agrees with our 1959
dating of this design.
Without the stopper, the decanter body measures 11
inches tall; it measures approximately 14 ¼ inches tall. It is about 6-8 inches across depending
on where you measure.
This decanter and stopper
are in very good vintage condition.
The stopper has no chips, nicks, cracks, or
repairs that we can find; the only condition issue we see is 2 light scuffs
that are about 1/8 inch long.
The body is in similar condition with a shallow scratch at the back; a few
scuffs; a 1mm chip at the very tip of the tiny spout (it is hard to see;
we found it with a fingernail); and some faint interior water staining on
one side and also some at the base.
With this litany, it sounds like it would be in bad condition, but
we had to look at it with a critical eye to see these issues. It is in remarkable condition for being
over 50 years old.
