This 37" tall architectural size Blenko #628L glass decanter was designed by Wayne Husted for the 1962 catalog and made for ONE YEAR ONLY, putting it amongst the very rarest Blenkos EVER. In fact, I don't know of any other architectural-sized Blenkos that were made only for one year. Using Worthpoint's historical online auction sales as a proxy metric for rarity, this baby is off the charts! Only SIX of them were sold on eBay (properly attributed, that is) since 2007.
This clean sparkling PRISTINE beauty (it appears never to have held liquid and has no damage whatsoever) is done in highly coveted AMETHYST (1962 was the last year in Blenko's 'historical period' that they produced AMETHYST), but as the photos suggest, this is a more purple amethyst, e.g. less red, more blue in the mix. The stopper alone is 14" tall, the body, 26" tall.

GLASSpheme loves custom orders! But how do we 'customize' vintage glass? Simple. We love glass and we love our customers--and there are many ways we can help!
1) Volume discounts: Let's say there are several pieces you MUST have. Let me know, and I'll send you our very best price for the lot.
2) Custom displays: Say you have a special place in your home that SCREAMS for a glass display. Send me a photo of the space, your budget, and the accent colors for your room, and we'll send you photographs of possible groupings and our special pricing for the lot.
3) Tell us what groupings you have in mind, and we'll photograph them together for you so you can see how they'll look together.
What could be better than giving a gorgeous piece of vintage glass as a gift? (Aside from getting one, that is.) Glass is beautiful and functional--mostly! Consider a super mod biomorphic bowl or cased glass jar for a vanity or dresser, a platter/centerpiece for fruit on a countertop, or a vase for cut flowers. Not only does vintage glass bring exquisite delight to the most mundane of household functions (you should see our soap dishes), but our beauties increase in value over time. Send us a note telling us your purchase is a gift, and we will send it along with your personalized gift card, colorful tissue paper and a bow. (You alone will receive the receipt by email.)
GLASSpheme ships your purchase on the very next business day, but we're flexible too! If you're going away on vacation or have a special date you'd like your gift to arrive, send us a note, and we'll time our shipping for you!
Simple! Join the GLASSpheme mailing list! Paste this link in your browser, send us your email address, and VOILA--you'll be among the first to know when your favorite piece of glass is on sale, or when we're offering coupons.
We sure do, all the time! Simply send us a photograph of the pieces you wish to sell and we'll make you our best offer! If you accept it, all you have to do is send us an invoice through Paypal, and ship it to us, if local pick-up isn't possible.
