About Blenko Glass-
The Blenko Glass Company in its
present form opened in 1921 and is one of the very few remaining hand blown
glass factories in the United States. Blenko is known for incredible award
winning designs in glass from many well known designers including Winslow
Anderson, Wayne Husted, John Nickerson, Joel Myers & Hank Adams. Blenko also
makes stained glass that graces the Washington Cathedral and the Air Force
Academy Chapel in Colorado Springs, Co. Blenko was honored to make the
Inaugural centerpieces for President Reagan's first term in 1981.
Blenko Glass has become highly
sought after for collectors and this series is sure to increase in value due
to its limited availability and the Blenko Handcrafted name.
Blenko Glass Company is
located in the heart of Milton, West Virginia. They have a visitors center
that is open daily and you can watch master glassblowers at work.
