Amber was a catalog color for the following time periods, 1936-1956 and 1985. This particular shade is unusual. It is one of the first water bottles that I purchased and someone,who at the time I thought was an expert, told me that it was Olive. Writing this blog has forced me to go through the collection and challenge what I thought I knew. At this point on the Blenko learning curve, I think that this water bottle was made before 1972, when the first Olive glass was made at Blenko. I now believe that this color is Amber. In the spirit of challenging your assumptions, I urge you to use the comment section below each post to challenge anything you read here. I do not consider myself an expert. You should not either.
Another unusual thing regarding this particular water bottle is that the label is on the shoulder. The only one I have ever seen.
