Rare Blenko Wayne Husted Mid-Century Open Cone Decanter Persian Blue
A rare Blenko Decanter designed by Wayne Husted with tall sweeping lines, a fanciful open cone decanter that looks like a wine glass perched at the top in translucent Persian blue. This particular decanter was designed and made by Blenko in 1959 and was only made for a couple of years. All in all, in excellent condition for its age and height, although there is an interior vertical fracture line inside the tall neck that can be seen in the photo. Interestingly, I tested it full of water, and there is no leakage or beading of moisture so the abrasion doesn't go all the way through, doesn't affect it either structurally or aesthetically and it's a rare discovery to have this decanter for display. Decanter could use a good cleaning as dirt is in evidence, but I didn't have a cleaning wand that long.
