This reprint of twelve 1972-1983 Blenko Glass Company catalogs is the third in the trilogy covering Blenko's early and middle years. 1983 marks the beginning of the "late" period when the label was changed. Glass items from the early years of the 1940s through the 1960s have been the most popular with collectors of Blenko Glass, but interest in 1970s items is awakening. Some pieces from the 1970s are already commanding high prices in the secondary markets both on-line and "in person." The catalogs are reproduced in their entirety, and a guide to current values for the items is included. John Nickerson and Don Shepherd were staff designers responsible for all of the newly-introduced glass in these catalogs. This volume catalogs their creativity and and its roots in the work of their predecessors, Winslow Anderson, Wayne Husted, and Joel Myers. For the collector and the historian, this is important and interesting information.
