So when I put eyes on it, I was amazed at just how large this spectacular piece of art glass is. In the catalog it states that it is to be 11 and 1/2 in tall. This one happens to be 12 and 1/4 in tall with a 10 and 1/2 in diameter. The colors are mesmerizing and the combination is tantalizing and very attractive. Please by all means take a moment and look at my feedback regarding my packaging abilities you won't be disappointed.
Now let's talk about condition. To collectors condition is everything. This specimen is in fine collectors quality. There are protective pads on the bottom of the jug to help insulate it from shelf wear. One pad is missing there are four on it now.There is only one slight scratch under the fifth pad which is missing. In any other case, without the pads this thing would have quite a bit of shelf wear but it does not. It is nearly pristine on the bottom as well as the sides the shoulders the neck and rim. The rim is slightly crackled. There are no through cracks. Any abnormalities in the surface of this area is from the natural process that took place when they manufactured it to crackle on the top. I've been to the Blenko glass factory and watched this process in person. They put the item in water and it crackles. The item is still so hot that it manages to still stay cohesive and that's how they do it. There are no chips, scratches other than the one I mentioned which is on the bottom as would be expected normally anyway. There are no flea bites. The glass is clean and clear and most likely has never seen a drop of water or liquid. There are no water stains or glass sickness which is something that I always look for. In summary, you're looking at something that's only appeared once in 17 years and I look everyday.
Please look at the pictures closely and you will be able to ascertain that this is an offering that you may not see again especially in the very fine condition that this spectacular art piece is being presented. I have around 30 pictures of this from every angle.
I can prove this is in pristine condition.
