Blenko Glass is a company that makes beautiful pieces in Milton, WV since 1893. If you have ever asked for a glass of water from my parents house, my house, Matt's house, Patti's house... you know the crackled and dimpled glasses first hand! My mom was born in WV, and loves that this company makes such beautiful things from her home state. She has slowly built up a collection over the years, and when we buy her flowers, they go in Blenko vases. They choose beautiful colors, unique styles, and my family just loves the crackle glass they have perfected. Also, if you watch PBS ever, they are like, always the glass company featured for the glass-blowing stuff. Like, always featured on the DVD if you donate to PBS. I'm sure you've seen them!
water bottles and a gorgeous decanter, all for less than what I would have spent on one of those things "first quality". Actually, I did pick out a gorgeous pitcher that was light blue and crackled and I so wanted it. My mom asked the lady there to fill it with water to make sure there were no leaks, and sure enough, there was one. It was so beautiful, I kind of still wanted it anyways, but I decided if I could never actually use it, I was better off without it. Thank goodness Mom suggested that test!
