Mod "Flower Power" Vase - ID = Wayne Husted design #6115L
« on: September 16, 2006, 05:47:45 PM »
Could anyone help me to identify this massively large vase with flowers?  It has no identifying marks.
Thanks,
Charles.

Hi Charles, Your vase is a Wayne Husted design #6115L, should be about 14 1/2" high. The color looks like Olive Green.

Thank you.  Strange how attaching a name to a thing increases one's appreciation (I happen to collect Blenko)  :lol:  Further research on the net confirms what you say.  What threw me was the molded looking base without the pontil mark I normally associate with Blenko vases.

Blenko made quite a few piece without pontils on the bottom. Blown from the top and sheared off at the top, like this vase. Or blown into a mold like Blenko's water bottles which leave no pontil. I just sold 3 of these vases on ebay, the small, medium and large like yours. The medium had it's original box with leaflet.

Image gone from Tinypic, but there's another example of this pattern here for reference:
