Blenko Pinched vase? Maker Pattern Circa Needed
« on: July 24, 2006, 06:57:14 PM »
Found this yesterday.  The Pontil is broke off, unfinished. The glass is old. No Crackle in the glass. Thought it might be Blenko, but was not sure. Blue with white, just gorgeous. Measures:  4 1/2" tall x 2 3/4" wide at top

You might try Rainbow or Pilgrim glass.
I dont think its Blenko, but still Amarican.

Also I went to your website, nice.  
Thanks again,

Vintagerose, I can tell you it's not Blenko but you can see some Rainbow pieces along with a few catalog pictures here if you like... http://sherril2.user.msu.edu/blenko/pictures/other_companies/rainbow/index.html

Thanks Cathy, I found the white on two of the pictures resemble the white on my piece.  Appreciate it,

Ok I went to some sites. I think my piece might have been made by Blenko, but Painted by Rainbow.  The Ice Blue color that is Blenko, matches my piece, and the painting by rainbow.  Now I'll through that out there and see what we think?

Vintagerose -  Judging by your pictures, the white is not painted on.  The white is part of the glass.  It is made by having the blue transparent glass and picking up small pieces of white glass then forming the piece.

This type of glass is commonly called splatter glass.

Ok, well so much for that idea  :oops:
I looked at quite a bit of rainbow, and really didn't see any piece like mine. I have yet to look at Pilgrim. If anyone has a good link to Pilgrim glass I would appreciate it.  I saved the other link on rainbow.

Thanks,

Vintagerose, You may want to post your picture and question on the ebay Pottery, Glass and Porcelain board. They may be able to help. It can be hard to get an exact maker on these vase for a few companies made them.
