RARE Blenko Rialto White & Red Decanter Wayne Husted 1960
Fresh from an estate a rare Blenko 14 Rialto Decanter in translucent white with applied ruby red glass. The Rialto Specialty Line was designed by Wayne Husted in 1960, it was made for only one year, and in limited quantities. It consists of 15 designs executed with translucent white bodies, often fading from nearly transparent to completely opaque in places. All applied bands, handles, decorative elements and stoppers are in Blenkos signature Ruby red. At no other time did Blenko ever produce a white glass. Technical difficulties and a high loss rate (it was particularly fragile due to the tin oxide used for coloration) conspired to result in the lowest production rate of all the Specialty Lines. This decanter is excellent condition. The item "RARE Blenko Rialto White & Red Decanter Wayne Husted 1960" is in sale since Sunday, November 06, 2016.
