ABC Wednesday G is for Glass


(This was taken before I got my new camera!)
This is a piece of Green (thanks happyone!)Glass from the Blenko Glass Company in Milton, West Virginia. It is not very far from where I grew up. The glass is all hand blown and all made in America. I have quite a few pieces and I love them all.

Drop over to MrsNesbitt's place to see all the participants of ABC Wednesday's!

  8. Hi Neva
    That is a stunning bit of glass.. I think so many people overlook glass in favour of ceramics, yet this blown glass artwork will be the antiques of the future. This is a very nice colour as well.

  32. Beautiful green glassware. What a showpiece!

    I am wondering about that glass company named Blenko. My maiden name is Blenkle and I know sometimes names got changed when people hit Ellis Island. . . I have never seen my name spelled that way tho but it might be a coincidence. . .
