It would be very hard to find a more elegant example of a Blenko decanter than this stunning piece! Made in 1962, this piece is 54 years old and aging fabulously! No issues with this piece.
There is a very small "notch" in the glass on the base which I have pictured closely. It was definitely during production because it is completely smooth in all areas around it.
See pictures also for some white marks on the bottom of the base. These also seem likely to be from production but I can not say for sure.
Either way they are on the base bottom and are not seen. Beautiful color, Turquoise, aka Blenko Blue, a favorite in the 60's. This piece stands just over 23 inches when the stopper is in place. It is about 16 inches without the stopper in place.
The stopper is approximately 9 inches tall. To preserve the clear elegance of the piece, the stoppers are not ground to fit these vases but rather sit freely. Turn it to the proper spot and it sits nicely!!
Please look at all pictures as they are part of the description and feel free to ask questions. This is a true rarity- don't let it slip away!
