58 years ago we made this shape, item 6228, for one year only! The textured pattern, looking like layers or stratified rock, was used on several shapes at that time.
We went looking for a fun shape to produce in limited numbers and this tall, 2 storied vase form of half a century ago seemed to beg to be made again. We will make no more than 50 pieces in each of our different colors in 2020.
These will be hand sheared at the top and slightly flared but without grinding for a stopper. The 2020 version is a vase not a bottle or decanter. Each will be clearly dated 2020 with the current Blenko logo. They are between 17 and 18 inches in towering height. This vase is now available in the colors of Paw Paw and Turquoise, Starburst and Tequila Sunrise, (Only while supplies last).
If you missed this form in 1962, here is a narrow and rare opportunity to add one to your collection now. Remember the quantity is limited to no more than 50 pieces per color.
*The Tequila Sunrise is two layers, so it requires more time and labor and our Starburst color is a heat sensitive glass so it too requires extra time to color the glass thus the price increase for these two colors.
The turquoise tall textured vase may look like stratified rock, but its shape brings something more exotic to mind...a pagoda. Would be nice to have this nice piece in mint, ruby, and cobalt as well.
Absolutely beautiful. This was a great present for my husband. LOVE IT! Thanks for marking pieces now.
This vase in paw paw is absolutely gorgeous. The color goes wonderfully with tangerine and ruby, but also would look great with cobalt and any green. Sunlight makes it come alive, and enhances pieces near it. My favorite purchase ages. Glad Blenko made this piece available.
This new piece looks amazing alongside the others that I have from the original collection done back in the 1960s. I love that Blenko is bringing back some iconic pieces from the past, yet distinguishing them from the older pieces with a few changes. As a collector of vintage Blenko, I appreciate this concerted effort. I also strive to support this wonderful company through the purchase of new pieces directly from them. Thank you for continuing the legacy of Blenko and adding to that legacy through your current work.
I purchased this in the Starburst color. Place it in a location which receives a lot of sunlight and you will be amazed how stunning this piece is.
Beautiful blue textured piece. Elegant and a real showpiece. The varied shapes and textures in the glass make it very unique and special. A wonderful gift item.
I ordered this vase for my wife for her birthday. The pictures do not do it justice, it is an absolutely beautiful piece that any Blenko collection will love. If you are into 1960's Blenko, this is a must have.
This vase is very attractive and striking in my home! "Must have" for collectors!
