Recent Raleigh, NC estate find. An amazing mid-century, hand blown Blenko decanter. Designed in 1959 by Wayne Husted, this piece is in peacock blue with a clear, elongated stopper. The decanter is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks, or haziness.
The stopper is equally as brilliant, but there are some small chips around the end the enters the decanter (see last photo). These are very shallow and could be ground.
Stands approximately 16 3/4 inches to the top of the stopper and about 8 to the top of the decanter. This is a hand blown piece with intended imperfections such as bubbles, swirls and drips in the glass. All of these are present on this piece.
There is a visible glass drip as show in the photos on the back side of the decanter. These intended imperfections add character to Blenko pieces. The previous owner has added felt strips to the bottom, which can be removed.
