Is this Blenko? looked my books can't find anything.

Looking for help in all the right places :lol: I looked for this in my books, Popular 50's and 60's Glass and circa Fifties Glass can't find it. Yes, I did buy some books! It is 12" tall and looks like the Topaz or Wheat color to me. I have also looked at all of the Blenko sites and find some things close but no horse shoes. Thanks Pam

Hi Pam,

The vase is not Blenko, sorry I don't know anymore than that.

from the photo, it looks like crinkle glass?
Made by a number of companies including Morgantown, Hocking etc

Unlikely to be Morgantown and certainly not Anchor Hocking with that base.

Thanks for all of the hlep! You people are great, I read the board all of the time. It didn't think crinkle glass was blown, but why not. Thanks for the info on the Blenko sites, I visit them all of the time, they did a great job, very informative. This vase is giving me a bad time, I am spending too much time on it. Someday I will run across something like it, maybe on the internet or at collectable store. Thanks again.
Pam
