Is this Blenko freeform or other ? approx date also please ?
« on: October 31, 2012, 04:48:44 PM »
Hi again (from Ireland) ,

The closest I can get is Blenko with this ashtray or bowl ?
It is heavy at aroung 1kg and measures 6 1/4" long  x  2 1/2" high
Clear glass with green and wear to flat base .
Not sure it would be great as an ashtray so maybe a bowl ? 1950's or 60's ?

Many thanks once again , Dave.

I do not believe its Blenko, I would say Murano & a cigar ashtray. Blenko freeform is rough & nowhere near as refined or polished as yours. Ken
