"Magnificent color, skilled craftsmanship and creative design make Blenko America's most colorful name in glass," touted a Blenko catalog advertisement. First begun in the late nineteenth century in Milton, West Virginia, Blenko remains one of the few glass factories in the United States where modern hand-blown glass is still in production. Recently, Blenko glass designs from the 1950s and 1960s have caught collectors' eyes. This book presents an exact, full-color reprinting of the yearly Blenko company catalogs from 1962 through 1971, thus offering a complete, well-illustrated record of Blenko glass products, including original retail prices and current market values. This book is most useful for the dealers and collectors of glass who appreciate the beauty and "timely glass design" of Blenko.
