BLENKO HUSTED HUGE FLOOR VASE ARCHITECTURAL SCALE 34"
IT'S BIG !
IT'S BLUE !
IT'S BLENKO !
You are offerding on a huge Blenko floor vase, or genie bottle, in Blenko Blue. This vase was part of a line of architectural scale floor vases designed and created by the great Wayne Husted. We checked the 1959 and 1960 and found a picture of some of the vases from this line. These vases are sometimes referred to as "Big Ass" Blenko, and that IS what you'll think when you encounter one.
Condition on the bottle itself is excellent, with no chips or cracks, and no etching. The stopper, which is really another, smaller vase or bottle, has breakage on the end. The breakage can be ground down without affecting the line of the vase or the tightness of the seal.
As you can see from the photo with the yardstick, the vase stands almost 36" tall, measuring just a tiny bit under 34", with the stopper. With the stopper out, it stands about 29" high. For some idea of the scale of this piece, we have shown it next to a piece of more conventional Blenko.
If you are a Blenko collector, or you just love unusual art glass, this is the vase for you. Perfect for the Mid-Century Modern interior, or anywhere you need to make a MAJOR design statement.
Please see our other sales this week for another Husted piece we are selling.
