For sale is this gorgeous Tangerine Orange vintage art glass Blenko 6224-L decanter in the largest size made. It stands about 11-1/4" tall and almost 5" square (4-3/4).
This decanter was designed by Wayne Husted when he worked for Blenko. The horizontally ridged texture reminds me of tree bark. It is beautifully made with a ground glass stopper. The stopper fits nicely with just some minor wiggle (common for these decanters).
The 1st picture depicts the most accurate color of the piece. Some of the other pictures almost appear amber, but that's because of the lighting and the camera. In person it's a gorgeous Orange Tangerine regardless of the lighting! This Blenko color was made from 1957 to 1981.This vintage piece was made in the 50's or 60's. A tough color to find in this decanter especially with it being mostly orange. Tangerine is a Blenko color that was created by Wayne Husted and is somewhat similar to Amberina. It is hand blown in a mold and has a pontil on the bottom.
The neck was hand finished after the piece was removed from the mold via the pontil rod attached to the bottom. It is in excellent condition, with no damage, stain, or even scratches. The last two images show this piece in 3 different colors. The other two decanters are listed in separate auctions.
