Blenko ? Pinch Dimpled Tangerine Tumbler

Is this Blenko?  Or some other maker such as Kanawha or Pilgrim?

I found similar glasses in other colors  described as Blenko but not from what I would consider a definitive source  :wink:

I would like the style name or number and year of production if possible.

TIA

It looks like my Empoli "bucket" vase.  The rim and the indentations are the same.  I love your colours though.

How is the bottom of your piece finished?

Hi Connie,

Looks like Blenko to me. Bischoff made them too, but their bottoms were thicker and more vertical and Blenko's were rounded like yours. There are two sizes for of this glass the 418S at 4 1/2" high and the 418L at 6" high. The catalog calls them indented glass and the color is Tangerine.

Thank you, CathyG.  I knew you would know!  :D

Can you tell me the year they were made?  Any particular designer associated with them?

I also love the Tangerine color.  I had a fabulous Blenko Bubble Wrap bottle decanter in Tangerine several years ago.

Hi Connie,

They are very common and Blenko's been making them for a long time. They are in the early Blenko catalogs and they are still being made today. No designer assoicated with them.
